Tip No. 1: Make It Personal
Anything you can do to humanize or differentiate your offer from others is a step in the right direction.
With that in mind, one of the first things you should do is reach out to the listing agent to try and find out if there’s anything special the seller is looking for or will respond to. Ask the question “What’s important to them?”
Now, not every listing agent will respond, but some will, and at least you made that effort.
You may also consider including a letter and/or photo providing some insight about your prospective buyers. All things being equal, sellers might be swayed by an emotional story or choosing someone who was at a similar stage in their lives to inhabit their cherished home.
Tugging at the sellers’ heartstrings might just do the trick to get your buyers stand out.
