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.
Family not interested? | Have you stopped collecting? | Downsizing or moving? | Lying in a cupboard unused? | Unwanted jewellery? | Would cash be more useful?
If yes to any of these questions, then please see our buyers this week. We will buy single items or complete collections.
The recent lockdown has seen many of us take the time to sort items we no longer require or simply want to turn into cash.
We are currently very short of stock and keen to buy any of these or similar items.
Please see us at any of the 10 venues throughout the Taranaki area.
Buying now at a venue near you deal with the specialists.

Being one of a few people who attended the open consultation process of the local council's 10 year plan I was very concerned about the proposed water take over by Government probably by the end of this year giving very little time for all councils to discuss this matter with the public. Full details have not yet been presented to Councils. This will cover water to your property. Grey wastewater and also storm water. So think of what is happened with Health Boards and the many problems there. This could be the future of your water. You will all be paying rates directly to a yet faceless organisation. You will be forced to accept fluoride whether it is good or not !!? If Government forced companies to greatly reduce sugar contents in drinks and food then there will not be so many teeth problems. I am doing my bit now do yours . Spread the word NO to Government controlling our water.
