While I was on a 7-mile run in the pouring rain yesterday, I thought of a humorous blog topic (as well as some examples!).
Real Estate Limericks!
For those unsure of the typical limerick rules, they are roughly: A limerick is a five-line poem written with one couplet and one triplet. If a couplet is a two-line rhymed poem, then a triplet would be a three-line rhymed poem. The rhyme pattern is a a b b a with lines 1, 2 and 5 containing 3 beats and rhyming, and lines 3 and 4 having two beats and rhyming.
It may be tough tough to keep with the beats, but I'll try to keep it close. Remember, I'm a real estate agent, not a poet!
That carpet was horribly rank
The fridge just totally stank
There was trash all about
And the power was out
This home must be owned by a bank
Can't believe what I heard on the phone
I have assets and own my own home
My score's 808
So my credit is great
Why can I not get a loan?
There once was a nice house for sale
The long market time made it real stale
A reduction is nice
Ten grand would suffice
The home with sell now without fail
There once was a man from Peru
One Sunday had nothing to do
He then went out biking
Saw a house to his liking
He now owns a house that's brand-new
There once was a real estate buyer
Who looked for an agent for hire
If she missed the tax credit
She'd live to regret it
Her search for a new home was dire
"Hope I get it", I think as I drive
These house auctions, they keep me alive
The place is worth four
I'll bid three, maybe more
But the bank will buy it back at five
At a showing, I once had to pee
"Go ahead. It's fine", said he
I was in a big rush
But the bowl wouldn't flush
Just what in the hell could this be?
My client asked what was the matter
I just had to relieve my bladder!
They were playing a joke
Or the toilet was broke
I hoped that it wasn't the latter
Let me know what you think or feel free to add your own! I'll add some more as I think of them as well.
