Ways to find out if it's real Unbelievable discounts: If it's too good to be true ... Seventy percent off! That s a bargain. But what if the, shirt, meal, massage or hotel, never really cost the full price anyway? You may have signed up for alerts for a few of the discount sites. Every day you get sent new offers that look amazing. But before you hit buy , check the deal is for real. Under the Fair Trading Act, businesses can t exaggerate dis- counts. If they say they are giving you a service or item for half price, that must be true. They can t say the usual price is $100, when the usual price is $80. You may be able to do a search on the internet to check if the discount is real. If you have a prob- lem with the service or item you bought, you can ask either the discount site or the provider to put it right. If the dis- count site says that you have to sort it out with the other business, they may be breaching the Fair Trading Act by mis- leading you about your rights. You can report a breach of the Fair Trading Act to the Com- merce Commission, visit www.comcom.govt.nz.

Nine regions enjoy strong farm sales ' The rise in the number of sales in the three months to October reflects the large number of properties currently being marketed for sale and a general mood of cautious optimism despite the current economic challenges internationally ' REINZ rural market spokesman Brian Peacocke Data released by the Real Estate Institute of NZ shows there were 286 farm sales in the three months to end of October 2011 compared with 147 sales in the three months to October 2010. The median price per hec- tare for all farms sold in the three months to October 2011 was $18,878 compared to $18,124 for the three months to October 2010. Nine regions recorded increases in sales volume for the three months ended Octo- ber 2011, with Canterbury recording the largest increase, followed by Auck- land and Nelson. The rise in the number of sales in the three months to October reflects the large number of properties cur- rently being marketed for sale and a general mood of cautious optimism despite the current economic challenges internationally, REINZ rural market spokes- man Brian Peacocke says. The recent reduction in Fonterra s forecast payout has had some impact on activity in the dairy sector, however, this is being offset to some extent by some of the best spring growing con- ditions we have seen for many years. Included in sales for the month of October were five dairy farms at an average sale value of $34,046 per hec- tare. The average farm size was 129 hectares and the average production per hec- tare across all dairy farms sold in October 2011 was 873kg of milk solids. Grazing properties accounted for the largest number of sales. The lifestyle property mar- ket also saw a further easing in the number of sales in the three months to October 2011 compared to the three months to September 2011 with 1197 sales being recorded in the three months to October, down 64 on the three months to September 2011.
