How to Write a Home Offer Letter

Updated March 23, 2017

It is the traditional American dream to own your own home. However, for first-time buyers, the process of buying a home can be very stressful. The terms used and the negotiations involved are often a mystery. One of the more touchy materials that a buyer has to deal with once he has settled on a house is the issue of making an offer on the house. It is very important to make this offer in writing, and that the format for the letter be done correctly.

  1. Type the name of the person you are making the offer in the salutation, such as "Dear Mrs. Walker." Under this, type the address of the property, such as "Re: 1020 Jones Ave, Somewhere City."

  2. Type in capital letters the words "SUBJECT TO CONTRACT" under the address of the house.

  3. Type below this the body of the letter, in which you state your desire to make an offer on the house. Mention and describe your financial ability to purchase the house, such as the amount of down payment you have ready and how you will be arranging the mortgage.

  4. State the amount that you are willing to offer for the house, and then explain your reasoning as to why you think this is a fair offer. List any conditions that you may have, such as a full survey of the property.

  5. Type in a friendly but professional closing, such as "Regards" or "Sincerely." Type and sign your name below this.
