Did a Heartfelt Letter to the Seller Land You a Home (or Fall Flat)? Let Us Know!

Jun 06, 2014

Were you competing to buy a house, and wrote a letter to the seller to persuade them to pick your offer? MONEY wants to hear about it.

For a new project, MONEY is looking for people who tried to win a bidding war or multiple offer situation (and maybe saved money in the process) by telling the seller something about themselves and connecting on a personal level.

Whether your letter scored you the property or wasn't enough to win over the seller, we'd love to speak with you. If you’d like to participate, email realestate@moneymail.com with your story and the letter you wrote (if you still have it).

We won't use your story unless we speak with you first.
