  • What is a Buyer Love Letter?

    Summary:

    Letters, videos, photos, or any communication accompanied by an offer from a potential buyer to appeal to the seller. Love letters place sellers in the position of indicating a preference for a buyer based on a "feeling" or something that the seller "just likes" about a potential buyer. This "feeling" frequently arises from shared interests, history, family preferences, etc. of the buyer and seller and may trigger decisions by seller based on the seller's unconscious bias.

Washington REALTORS® is dedicated to the work of equity and inclusion.
