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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
I still have a few spaces left in my Art Development courses for Term 2, which starts from 3rd May.
I have been running my studio-based art school since 2007 for students aged between 9 to adults. I enjoy teaching drawing, painting, mixed media, and sculpture. Students can work at their own pace, on themes of their choice, and begin from their own level of ability and start any time throughout the term.
Contact Megan to make a time to do a meet and greet.
