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.

Watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa

The Team from Wellington Water

We can now use sprinklers and irrigations systems to water our gardens! 🌼🌻
This is because watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa 👏

“Community action in limiting water use, paired with the hot summer peak use period coming to an end, means we are confident about removing watering restrictions across the region” says Laurence Edwards, Chief Advisor Drinking Water.

Please continue to be mindful of water use as the rivers, lakes and aquifers recover. 💧

Please remember that alternate day, odds-evens watering still applies in Upper Hutt, and South Wairarapa as it does all year round.
