Does Anyone Read Any More?

Does anyone ever read anymore?  Sounds like a silly question doesn’t it, especially since you’re reading this post! Here’s why I’m asking that simple question: When a property is entered into the MLS, you are supposed to give a description of the READproperty…notice I said “supposed to”.  I guess it is not written any where in any rule or policy that you have to write a “description” or as we were taught: paint a picture with your words. But then again when some REALTORS describe the property…they tend to take vague liberties with the written word.

I have decided to interpret some of the descriptions – please, no laughing out loud:

  • Handyman special = this property is totally trashed!TLC
  • Needs TLC = close to being totally trashed!
  • Partially updated = means a new door.
  • Like new kitchen = renovated 10 years ago.
  • Oh here is a good one….No Pets… you get calls about dogs, trained cats, birds etc.,  What is it about no pets that prompts everyone that has a customer with a pet?

Oh I could go on and on.  I guess when we get a listing, we tend to go overboard to glamorize it, when if we just told the truth, it will still sell.

Let’s be good to each other…let’s be REALTORS

Until Next Monday,

    You nailed another one. Thanks.


  2. One of my favorites…is “Rental Ready”. I guess that means it has beach towels, golf clubs, fishing poles and tackle box, rafts and golf cart? 😀
