Real Estate Ads: What They Say, What They Mean
Guest post by Gay Gasser
We work with a lot of realtors, helping their clients declutter their homes for a faster sale. My friend Gay Gasser, who has a background in real estate, offers up some sage advice to home buyers.
Are you getting ready to buy a house? Here’s a helpful guide to deciphering those flowery real estate ads:
Mature Trees– Ready to fall on house
Rustic Charm-Snakes under the porch
Desirable Neighborhood – Extravagantly overpriced
Great Potential– Nothing worth saving
Move In Condition-All rooms have new coat of cheap, white paint.
Meticulously Maintained- Appliances over 50 years old
Open Floor Plan- All supporting walls removed
Easy to Show-Been vacant for years
One of a Kind-Ugly as sin
Beach Community– In a flood zone
Quiet Neighbors – home backs to a cemetery
Convenient- Rear yard abuts the throughway
Funny stuff. Do you have a favorite?
