You don’t have to spend much time in Boulder to realize that the Colorado real estate market is going a little crazy! Houses are appreciating at unheard of rates, which is great news for homeowners, but it can be more than a little frustrating for anyone trying to buy a home.
Buyers are having to be pretty patient, putting in offers well above the asking price, and brushing off rejection when their offer isn’t accepted and the house they love is sold to someone else. Most homes in Colorado are selling quickly with homeowners receiving many competitive offers. So the vast majority of buyers will put offers in on several homes before they have an offer accepted.
If you want to increase your odds of having your offer accepted, there is one simple thing you can do. In addition to submitting the strongest offer you can submit, you can write a personal letter to the seller.
A personal letter should introduce yourself and your family. It should explain why you are buying a house now, and why you are specifically excited about this particular house.
Homeowners get attached to the homes they have live in, and they want to know that the new owner will love and appreciate their home as much as they have. It may seem silly, but often times the personal touch of a letter makes all the difference to a seller who can have their pick of buyers.
We would be happy to help you find your perfect home in Colorado, and we can share our expertise on putting together offers that are appealing to sellers in this hectic Colorado real estate market.
