In 2017 a smart woman from Britain has made up an unusual way to buy the house she liked. Sally Deakin, a 35-year-old social worker from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, managed to buy the property by sending a handwritten letter to the owners asking them to sell it.

Although the woman was living in a new building at that time, she spotted the traditional mid-terrace house that caught her imagination.

'It wasn’t for sale when I saw it so I posted a letter through the door explaining I would be interested in buying it if ever they came to sell," the woman says.

It came to her as surprise that the owners became interested in her offer. She didn't officially send the letter, but simply slipped a piece of paper under the owners' door. Six months later, the owners agreed to sell the house for $237,000.
