After an initial offer has already been sent, if there is no response you may want to follow up with an increased amount for the second offer. There are built-in 2nd Offer Cover Letter templates in the LPG System. As a general rule we don’t recommend that you change any of our built-in document templates as these have been tested and tweaked over thousands of successful deals.
If you would still like to test out variations of the 2nd Offer Cover Letter, in this article we will discuss how you can create a new custom version that uses our content as a base and then incorporates you custom verbiage in the document.
