Have you gone through the home buying process before? Last year was our very first time. We were lucky enough to have an awesome realtor, my longtime friend Pat Dolan! If you’re in the area, I can’t recommend him enough. There are so many forms, things to sign, get done, and he walked us through everything. Having a personalized home offer letter can help you!
The housing market in California is crazy. Bananas. Houses sell so quickly! To stand out in the crowd of offers, it can be beneficial to write a personalized letter to send with your offer. My cousin did this in San Diego and got the house they wanted, so I decided that we should do it with ours! I typed out a rough draft then sent it to my sister who edited it and here’s the final draft that ended up getting us our home!! Feel free to use it and tweak it to your needs. Be sure to include a photo of your family! Good luck with your house hunt :)
Personalized Letter to Send with your Home Offer
My name is (name here) and my husband is (name here). We have been married for 10 years and have three daughters: (names and ages here). We are (city here) natives and first-time home buyers.
(Husband name) and I have been searching for our “forever” home: a place we can raise our children and make happy memories for many years to come. We had the opportunity to tour your home today and immediately fell in love. It is beautiful and so well taken care of. The pride of ownership is self-evident. The location, space, and charm of the house are perfect to us.
I have always dreamed of raising my family in this neighborhood. I have countless childhood memories there because my grandparents have lived a few houses up the street for almost 50 years. My grandpa enjoys going out to lunch with the current owner. It would be my daughters’ dream come true to live on the same street as their great-grandparents!

Please consider our family when making your selling decision. We can already picture our girls running around the gorgeous yard. We would be incredibly honored to live in this home and raise our children there. Thank you for your time and consideration.
