MONEY buying a home

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

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 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.

Dear MONEY Reader,

As a regular visitor to, we are sure you enjoy all the great journalism created by our editors and reporters. Great journalism has great value, and it costs money to make it. One of the main ways we cover our costs is through advertising.

The use of software that blocks ads limits our ability to provide you with the journalism you enjoy. Consider turning your Ad Blocker off so that we can continue to provide the world class journalism you have become accustomed to.
