loved homes. A love letter from buyers helps seller to let go; knowing the home will be loved and
taken care of by the new owners.
Hope this helped you!

I think the focus of the letter should be what the buyers love about the house with perhaps a sentence or two about themselves since sellers are often curious. Selling your home is an emotional process - sellers usually want to feel good about passing the house on to the buyers and to me that's the feeling you want to inspire with the letter. Mention special features, things they've done to the house, things you can guess that they're proud of, etc.
Sellers often refer to a line or two in the letter multiple times during the weeks leading up to the closing. A well written letter that makes a seller feel good can definitely make a difference.

I hope this helps a little and best of luck in your home search and purchase.
Using this technique I have been able to get offers accepted that were not necessarily the highest, and even had one seller move up the closing date by 6 months to accommodate the buyers.

Yes, especially in the extremely competitive East Bay Area I always have my buyers add a note to the sellers (except for REO's). It might not help all of the time, but it never hurts. I also add a letter from the lender saying how strong the buyers are financially.
I call them LOVE LETTERS
and sellers should do one too to buyers
Why they loved the home !

Happy House Hunting - remember just be GENUINE when writing a letter - it makes a difference.
However 100% of the time the highest offer with the least contingencies wins. (Except in situations where a builder is interested in tearing the house down, its then 95%)
Happy House Hunting you guys!
From your Trulia profile it appears you are not a real estate professional. As such, only the 50.000 foot view can be provided.
There is value in a strategic letter of introduction. A letter to the Foreclosure department at Wells Fargo will has NO value.
The greatest benefit is derived in the application of human perception disciplines. Your REALTOR has training in this regard and can explain the ques and clues. This alignment is more essential than why the buyer wants the home.
Best of success,

This can also make a difference to a seller if he or she feels the buyer will love and maintain the home just as they have, especially if they've owned it for many years. As Elizabeth stated, selling a home can be just as much as, if not more than an emotional experience for a seller as it is for a buyer, and I've personally had sellers accept a slightly lower offer for instance because the buyer vowed to maintain their extensive flower gardens after purchase, believe it or not!
