Somewhere in the past few years, we have lost the ability to spell. We are so dependent upon automated spell checking software, that, when it doesn't work, we do not seem to have the ability to find our own mistakes and make corrections.
This morning I was looking at homes in another area of the country on REALTORS.ca. Okay, I may no longer be an agent but I am still a buyer and will, one day, want to be Seller. I found a fantastic looking home, priced well over $500,000 and decided to do some window shopping through the photos. Now, on the positive side, the listing agent had actually added information to each photo (many lazier agents skip doing this work). On the negative side, the spell check must not have been available and the agent had neither the skills to find their own mistakes or did not take the time to write the text in a software package that would have found the errors. While spelling was the key area, grammar would have run a close second on things the agent could have worked on before listing the home on a national website. I am surprised that the Sellers have not insisted that changes be made. Here are just some of the things that I tripped over when looking at the listing.:
Oppulence is in the in ensuite.
Makes for great Quest Quarters. (Now here is where I think the magnifying glass could come in handy.)
Bath that is with yet a third full bath.
Birds eye view.
If the Sellers take any time to look at the listing, and almost 100% of them do, then they may wonder why they are paying over $25,000 to sell their home to an agent who apparently cannot take the time to check his or her work!!!! Buyers, finding those mistakes are going to wonder if the room measurements are correct and if any of the additional information actually relates to the property being sold. The lack of attention may result in a missed sale.
Finding these mistakes just magnifies sloppy work. Attention is needed in ALL the details.
