Ok... so we are in the process of buying our final family home. We really like a place that is up for tender. We will put in our best offer but are concerned it may not be good enough (marginally). We thought to differentiate our offer we would 1. Write a letter with a photo of our family trying to connect common interests 2. Included in the special terms offer them a bottle of 2008 grange (or something like that?) - because we know the sellers like wine. To the property chat community. 1. Is this ridiculous 2. If you loved wine and were (presumably) very financially comfortable would this sway you over and above the purchase price of the wine since with the letter and the bottle of wine we are trying to make a personal connection. Would this (Hopefully) emotional connection potentially sway you to the tune of 15-20k knowing we clearly love the house and have tried to connect with them emotionally (to put this in perspective the property is in the 1.5-2m price range) less even if there was a higher offer. We are also looking at going in unconditional (the sellers have already had a building and pest and we are comfortable with it, we will have pre-approval) and potentially looking at waiving our cooling off period Are these things reasonable or crazy? We also know this will make us look desperate and like the RE agent can squeeze more money out of us but we are at our financial limit so we will just walk away knowing we physically can’t go higher (and being ok with that) if the agent is trying to bait us higher due to our emotional connection to the house. We are also early days in looking so while we love this house we know there are plenty of others out there. Just looking at options here Thanks for your thoughts!
