Putting together my first cash offer deal. I'm not using a realtor and the realtor asked me to submit a offer. Where can I find a template for an offer letter?
Do you mind sharing a little more about the property you want to write your offer on?
If it's straight off the MLS and you're not trying to negotiate a deep discount, or seller financing, or if this isn't a property you REALLY want to have, I might suggest asking a realtor to be your buyer agent and use the standard NC realtor form. (I'm assuming the seller's agent said to write the offer).
That said, I ALMOST always write personal letters with my offers. I ALWAYS write letters when I'm asking for terms like a deep discount plus seller financing.
That said, I've spent a career in journalism and was a business writer for the Charlotte Observer, so writing a convincing pitch comes easily to me. Unfortunately, the letters are always custom and written after I've analyzed the deal up-down-and-sideways.
My advice is focus on the seller's perspective and what you can say that may appeal to them. I'm happy to review a draft if you'd like.
Best of luck!
Oh, I just reread your post. You are NOT using a realtor. Whenever I come across a listed property I want, I ALWAYS ask one of my realtor friends to write an offer for me. It doesn't cost me anything, helps my friend, and lifts a lot of the closing process off my shoulders (such as checking on title search status and keeping the closing on schedule).
@Lore Postman. Thank you I spoke to my realtor. It's through a wholesaler. In this case, it was easy as putting in a bid. An email with the subject indicating the address and the body simply the number. Done
That’s great! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’s smooth sailing through closing!
@Lore Postman you should see my latest post.
@Joshua Klein Thanks for the heads up. I just replied in that thread.
