Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,

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 thing about Brian and I the whole time is that we've always believed you never come to the house of the Lord empty-handed, even though you may do an AP [automatic payment].“One dollar coin, two dollar coin, bring something into the house of the Lord. Bring what you can, over and above, because really it's the offering where God commands the blessing.“The tithe is being obedient, so you bring 10 per cent. That belongs to God. And then you get to thrive on the 90 per cent.“And then if you go over and above and give a little bit more for an offering, that's where God commands the blessing. So it's up to you – you make the decision, you make the choice.”

Brian Tamaki, who describes himself as an apostle, explained his reasons for getting out of Auckland. “We're on lockdown three in Auckland, that means there's to be no business for seven days.
Freudian slip of the tongue there Brian your faith is a "business " great now that's out in the open and if you had the virus would you sneak away to get the vaccine or send a quick prayer to god but the vaccines free god may ask you for an offering Jacinda would gain much kudos if she made a example out you Hannah advises you are going to Invercargill your passing her house pop in for a blessing

Blind Low Vision New Zealand do an amazing job providing emotional and practical support to New Zealanders with low vision and sight loss. One of the ways they do this is with guide dogs. 🥰

It takes aproximately 18 to 20 months to train a dog. From 9 weeks of age they are placed with puppy raisers who provide them with new experiences every day, so they get used to the world, new people, situations and experiences.🐕‍🦺

From 12 months of age they go for intensive training and testing and once they have completed and passed everything required of them they are ready for placement.💕

For those of you that don’t know, here at Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre we do the health checks and vaccinations for the puppies and dogs in our area for the organisation. These dogs do a wonderul service and it is a pleasure that we can play a small part in their lives.

This is Callum, another one of their amazing dogs who came into the clinic for a health check and vaccinations last week.🐾💕

We are proud to support Blind Low Vision NZ in every way we can.❤️
