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.

The Team from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

The work of New Zealand Red Cross is diverse and far reaching and would not be possible without the efforts of our amazing members, staff, and supporters who volunteer.

Can you give an hour or two of your time to help vulnerable people in your community?

To get involved please sign up at www.redcross.org.nz.... By donating your time, you're making a real difference in people's lives. We don’t know where we’ll be needed next, but we do know because of you, we’ll be there!
