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.
Well, in this mornings news they have stated that they want to build 750 homes in Nelson. What a flippen joke. Not against new homes but w here is the infrastructure to accommodate an increase of population. They also said it might get a little more busy, or words to that affect. Now I know for sure that this tin pot town is down the tubes. We need a decent mayor in power and not one that is more concerned about image and smiling nicely at the camera. Oh Nelson is a lovely town, maybe once upon a time but give it a couple of years with this lot in power and it will be bedlam trying to get anywhere. Oh but we have a 40 mill library, well whippy. 😡
Just so you know if you get caught using your phone will driving the FINE has now doubled to $150. Driving between Motueka and Nelson every weekday I have lost count of drivers using their phones. I do hope you get caught. The fine should be $500 and your phone taken off you. 22 people have died on NZ roads in the past 5 years due to phone use.
Just my thoughts.
I need four house bricks to repair a hole in the wall of my house. They are proving hard to find... 230x75mm or close. Colour is not an issue - not compared to the hole anyway ;-)
