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.
Hi Neighbours, If buses are running near empty, maybe the traditional way of providing public transport needs a rethink. Read the story below on the empty buses of Hobsonville Point. What's the answer ?
Three locations of interest have been announced in relation to the Auckland Airport border worker who tested positive for Covid-19.
The fully-vaccinated employee, who works cleaning planes that have come from countries with a high-risk of Covid-19, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.
The locations of interest were visited on Saturday April 17 and include:
- Westfield St Lukes Food Court, between 12:15pm and 2:30pm
- Bunnings New Lynn, between 2:30pm and 3:50pm
- Movenpick Dominion Road, between 5:15pm to 7:20pm
The Ministry of Health said people who were at these places are considered casual contacts and should monitor their health and be aware of any symptoms of Covid-19.
If anyone develops symptoms they should stay at home, contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453 and get a test.
