Real Estate Poetry….

Did you know Realtors also have a poetic license?

Check this MLS ad of a house for sale:

Cozy bungalow in a desirable neighbourhood.  Sunny corner lot with a low maintenance yard.  Ready to move in! Updated kitchen and bathroom.  Many upgrades throughout while keeping the original charm of the house.  Must see inside!!

Here is the translation:

It is a small bungalow, overpriced thanks to being located in a snobby  neighbourhood.  It is on a busy intersection with no trees or grass, but gravel or concrete instead.  They refaced the kitchen cabinets and put a new fridge and stove and the bathroom has a new toilet and shower head.  The house has a new electrical panel and it has been painted, but the old plaster walls and old baseboards are still there.  It is very ugly outside!!

What you see in an ad is not necessarily what you get.  Here is another description you see often: Needs some TLC…….what do you think that actually means?

Can you think of any other words or saying Realtors like to use?
