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.

Thames Market - Every Saturday

Thames Market

Steampunk Weekend! While there is a separate themed market in the adjacent St Georges Church Hall, a huge number of stallholders with a focus on the craze have booked in for Thames Market this Saturday - new ones and regular ones. They're just too many to list. You need to come down and see for yourself. And because it's this special weekend we are going until 1 pm. Be ready to park some way away as Pollen Street will be closed for the best part of the morning for the big Steampunk parade.

Steampunk photoshoot at Thames Museum

Carolyn from Thames

At Thames Museum we're looking forward to Steampunk this Friday and Saturday. A penny-farthing, a mangle and a chaff cutter are just three of the Victorian artefacts that you can pose with. Come and see what else takes your fancy for an old-time photoshoot. Open Friday to Wednesday, 10am to 3pm, corner Pollen and Cochrane Streets.
