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 years plan - What's next?

Charles from Lynmouth - Moturoa

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

Were you a NPDC rate payer around 2000; on a fixed/limited income; paid in the vicinity of the minimum wage or just fed up with the Council ignoring rate payer wishes.

If so do you think it is fair for the Council to sit on $300million while expecting us to keep coughing up.
