Hi Sharma,

I happened to stumble upon your blog while surfing and really liked the posts.

I am wondering if you'd be interested in a guest blog post about "Things To Look Out For When Getting Landed Property". I have some ideas that I am sure will interest your readers. The post will be about 400-700 words.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Kind Regards,
Shanaya
