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.

Michelle from Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre

Tomorrow is World Vet Day 2021 and we are celebrating our incredible Vet Team and all vets worldwide. World Veterinary Day is an annual event that was created by the World Veterinary Association to promote and highlight the work performed by veterinarians around the world.

It is a day to remind ourselves of their remarkable dedication to animal health, care and welfare, so a Big Thank You to Dr Henri, Dr Nicole, Dr Stephen, Dr Simon, Dr Larry and our VRS Referral Surgeon Dr Ian Millward who between them bring you over 120 years of veterinary experience and knowledge.

Although difficult to accurately say, it is estimated that there are approximately 1.8 Million registered vets worldwide. So here are some pictures of our wonderful six in action!

- The first six digits of the serial number for the recalled range is: 648735.
- Only use the affected Diono seat as a backless booster seat until replacement units are available.
- Replacement headrests will be available in the next month.
