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: email@example.com.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
Next weekend, April 17 and 18, I will be removing a whole kitchen, a laundry tub, and a built in shower and bath. If anyone wants any part of this it is free for the help in removal. It is a mid 80's house but I don't have any history of renovations. We haven't taken possession of the house yet, so sorry, no photos, just phone me on the 17th, (Saturday) for a look. Phone Trevor on 027 444 0336.
