Comrade Stanhope's Reality Check

When i first saw the title of this publication on Jon Stanhopes site i had an immediate sense of dread. Probably because its dealing with one of the seven most stressful things i’m ging to experience in my life. Apparently.

On the other hand it could have been the comrades face leering at me as i read it.

Reality Check is a new publication to be brought out by the ACT Office of Fair Trading as a guide to real estate buyers and sellers and a bunch of others who should know better (agents, lawyers et al). The comrade informs us that never before has a guide been issued that encompasses all of the changes his governement has introduced to regulate the local real estate market so as to protect us, his loyal constituents from unscrupulous behaviours.

You can grab a copy of Reality Check from ACT Govt Shopfronts from 1 December; from the OFT website or by calling 62070400

The only ‘reality check’ the punter would want is the chance to be able to enter into home-ownership without entering into debt up to their eyeballs.

Love the way Jazz that while you’re obviously not a fan of the Stan on party lines, you can’t actually find anything bad to say about what his gov’t has done in this instance so all that’s left is to create a sense of vague unease – bravo 🙂
