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.

MBIE Recalls booster seat due to safety concerns

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

A booster seat has been recalled due to the chance of malfunctioning in the event of a crash.

The booster seat, the Diono Cambria 2, has been recalled by MBIE as the headrest could crack or break in a collission. The recall notice warns that the headrest may detach, causing serious injury to an infant or child.

Here's what you need to know:
- Units affected are those manufactured between September 2020 and November 2020.
- 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.

Affected product owners can find out more about the recall on the Diono Website or get in touch with them on 0800 34 66 66.

Eskdale Park

Trina from Bayview - Eskdale

Hi Everyone

Thank you for your support of Eskdale Park. The Reserve Management Plan process is continuing for the park. The first step of the process is the My Voice My Choice survey which has been running for some weeks now.  The survey ends tomorrow, Friday April 23rd. Which means that tomorrow is the last day to fill out a survey.

If you have not filled in a My Voice My Choice survey for the Eskdale Park please consider doing so. It only take a few minutes to complete the survey online. Just please be very careful of how you answer question 13 on the online form. As it is basically the HBMTBC conceptual drawing in a survey form. (So much for their plan/drawing being off the table as HDC and the Mayor has led us all to believe). Gee Whiz.

If you need help filling out the survey please reach out to us.  Our email address is saveeskdalepark@gmail.com

Here is the link for the My Voice My Choice survey form online. www.myvoicemychoice.co.nz...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Together we can preserve Eskdale Park for all people for all time, the way Thomas Clark envisioned it to be.
