In case you haven't read the past few posts, I'll give you a quick little catch up so you won't be completely clueless. Last week, we were divinely led to a house in Dallas that we quickly made an offer on. Unfortunately, 2 other buyers also put in offers. This market is insane, I tell ya!
We knew we had to pull out all the stops if this house was going to be in our future so here's what we did...the kids wrote letters. The only direction I gave them was to tell the owner how much they liked the house and why they'd like to live there. They ran with it!
Bryn's my little writer and the second I told her this was to be persuasive letter, her eyes lit up and she dove right in. She asked me to edit it, but I didn't want to touch it...it was perfect as is, misspellings and all.
I wrote a letter too, but I'll spare you because it completely lacks the cute factor of these two. So, friends, file this idea away for a future date in case you ever find yourself in a bidding war. Adding a personal touch and sharing thoughts from your heart just may give you a leg up on the competition too. That and a lot of prayer, of course.
