Our words from times of war

Matt Rilkoff Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

In commemoration of Anzac Day, the Taranaki Daily News is joining all other Stuff titles in the hunt for letters sent to by loved ones during times of war.

These may be letters from those who served, or to those who served. They may be more than 100 years old, or they may be much more recent. We know these letters will have been passed down and may be very significant to your families. These letters will remain with you - we will just take a copy, which may then be published as part of our Anzac Day coverage. We aim to have about 25 to 30 letters from Taranaki. If you have any letters you would like to share, please email matthew.rilkoff@stuff.co.nz

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,

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.
