Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Santos sisters cleaning.

Ashleigh from Parnell

These girls left a flyer in my letterbox.
I decided to try them out.
They left my house with dirty bathrooms, no dusting or polishing, and charged me $50.00 per hour per girl, just to top it off they use your equipment and cleaning products and broke my brand new Dyson V11 vacuum cleaner, and skipped off without confessing to the damage.
I hope they have public liability insurance because they will need to pay for the damage.
Beware!!
