Try, Try Again

One young couple hunting for a home in The Hamptons thought they had lost a favored house to higher bidders...until the owner's broker came back and told them to "submit a personal statement explaining who they are, why they love the house and why they deserve to be the winning bidder." Despite higher offers, their packet, featuring family photos and an apparently convincing case, won out. One competing buyer offered the couple $50K for the contract, but they held fast, closing last Friday. [Curbed Hamptons]
