Once again we have had our work ute stolen for the third time in 2 years . It was taken in broad daylight this afternoon between 12.45 and 2.30 pm. If anyone out there sees it could they let me know where it is, as we really need it back.
And to those who keep taking it would you please stop picking on the little guy who is just trying to make an honest living, unlike you, who are just out to take what you can get, don't care about anyone but yourselves, and don't care if your actions result in a business having to go bankrupt and putting 5 people out of work.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
