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 Neighbourly.co.nz

UPDATE
April 21
9:53am

MetService has lifted the warning for Bay of Plenty and widespread heavy rain for much of the North Island has passed.
_________________________________________________________________

There is the potential for flash flooding and damage to property tonight as a severe weather system passes through the Bay of Plenty region.

In a statement, MetService said that there was a chance of peak rates of 20mm to 30mm of rainfall per hour with thunderstorms possible from the deep low-pressure system.

Motorists are asked to exercise caution and drive to the conditions as visibility may be reduced.

The remainder of the North Island should be covered by heavy falls by early Wednesday as the low moves southeast over New Zealand.
