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.

Do you own a rental property? Are you a tenant?

Quinton from Milson

Hi Neighbours,

I'd like to find out who on here owns a rental property?

How are you coping with the new laws thats been released?

How are you maintaining your property?

Is the home to the new "healthy home" standard?

Do you care who you have as tenants in your home?

Are you a tenant? Is your landlord nice? Rent affordable? How much are you paying and what do you rent?

Really keen on hearing what the general consensus is out there?

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.

Accessing neughbour outside my neighbourhood

Ria from Bulls - Sanson

Hi, I have been trying to contact someone outside my neighborhood to buy 2 beds which he is advertising. It keeps coming up I am unable to contact him via email because he is outside my neighbourhood. He is in the Milson neighborhood, I have changed my settings but it still keeps coming up with same message. So, Kevin Bromley if you see this I am keen to contact you about those beds.
Cheers
Ria
