Making Offers… - Posted by Debbie Mac

I’m new to investing and have been looking for motivated sellers. Recently, I talked to a seller who seemed motivated (divorced, owns the home, wants to sell and move on). He just reduced his price. My question is regarding making an offer. Does the offer have to be in writing or can you just verbally discuss the offer with the seller and if he accepts then you move on to purchase agreement? Or does the offer have to be in the form of a purchase agreement?
I also have a question regarding vacant properties. I got names and addresses for three vacant houses. If it is the vacant property address, do you take a chance and send a letter there and hope for a forwarding address, or is there a better way? One of them owes taxes from last year so this may be a motivated seller. How should the letter be worded so as not to offend?
Thank you for your help.
