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.

Poll: NPDC 10 year plan - Have your say!!!

Charles from Lynmouth - Moturoa

It is now time to put pressure on our elected representatives to make sure they give your submission due consideration.

Inflation has now been less than 3% per annum for many years but still the Council charges us many times this rate and wants to continue to do so.

Do you think this is fair. Should rates increases and other Council costs be limited to the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Your income probably is.

I do not think it was included in the NPDC Long Term submission form but do you agree with the Council spending another 11 million dollars on the Pink Palace. Essential work perhaps if properly estimated and approved by the full Council.

Do you think this extra 11 million should be spent?
