In the real estate world a letter of intention to buy is most often the first step a buyer takes when they have found the home that they wish to purchase.

For those who have never written one a letter of intent sample can be found at several websites on the Internet along with instructions covered how to fill it out effectively. You will find many different versions making it easy to find one that suits your specific needs.
