Listing Agent to Seller

Between Listing Agent & Seller

handwritten note between listing agent and seller

Handwritten cards between the listing agent and seller are important because they document key discussions and decisions that were made during the course of the transaction.

For example, a handwritten note might remind the seller that they agreed to pay for a home inspection, or it might confirm that the listing agent discussed how the sale will be handled with respect to capital gains taxes. 

One of the best ways to use personalized handwritten notes between agent and seller, however, is for an after-close message. 

It is no secret that real estate agents are busy people. Between showing houses, writing offers, and negotiating contracts, there is not always a lot of time for hand-written notes. That is why we have put together a few templates that you can use to make your notes look professional.
