Explain that you are presenting this as a Letter of Intent to purchase the propertyǐ. Explain who you are _ whether you are buying through an LLC, investment group, etcǑ. Describe the property you are purchasing _ the property name and addressǒ. Include the price you would agree to purchase the propertyǓ. Define the due diligence period _ it may be anywhere from 30 to 90 days, possibly even longer in a complex projectǔ. Identify how you would like to finance the project _ Seller financing, loan assumption, bank financing, etc.
