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.
Locals will have the opportunity to tour HMNZS Aotearoa on Monday, April 26, between 11am and 2.30pm. Tours will start and end at the east gate, on Ocean View Pde near the New Plymouth Yacht Club. Buses will take groups to and from the vessel, and people are asked to wear sensible, covered footwear.
The open day was originally planned for Saturday but has been changed because of sea conditions.
A free family event!
In collaboration with Sustainable Taranaki, the Flying High Charitable Trust is bringing their hot air balloon to Taranaki this April 2021. The tour aims to promote and inspire sustainable innovation. The three events will provide an introduction and pathway for kids and their families to live more sustainably, create positive change for future generations, and foster innovation.
Energy, transport, waste, sustainable living and sustainable communities are just some of the themes that aeronaut, Andrew Parker, will chat about to inspire children and their families to think about how they can help to create a sustainable future for generations.

The Flying High series of events are kindly funded by TSB Community Trust, organised by Sustainable Taranaki, and supported by Phil Jones Multimedia Artist and the New Plymouth District Council.
