Great post!Reminds me of when we use to look at all the new listings in MLS and comment on photos of crazy things.Goes to show you that spell check is always the safest tool around.

BBQ smoke

I’m back this week with more MLS and real estate ad bloopers; and a few of them will bring tears to your eyes. Some of these agents are either in too much of a hurry, or too dumb to waste air. But who am I to judge…I once signed a letter, “Best retards, Gwen.” I am sure my client thought that said it all. Thanks to Dick Beals of Wilmington, NC for his great contribution. Proof or goof, friends. Check these out:

Haste Makes “Waste”

“Deck with BBQ above garbage” (What could be more tempting than maggots on a burger?)

“Craport for two” (Great – an outhouse for the Olsen twins.)

“Peas don’t be early” (Peas don’t be a moron.)

“Must go pass target” (Not if I aim straight at you…and you don’t duck.)

“All guesses welcome” (My guesses that you’ve had a lobotomy.)

“Extra long dive” (Thank you and your Speedo, Michael Phelps.)

“Has major retrofat” (So does my retro a__.)

More Bull

“Nice vestedbulle” (Nothing says Ole' like a bull in a Brooks Brothers suit.)

“Lots of hand cut in den” (Lots of big stitches in E.R.)

“Sit down w/ owner & work pout” (I tried that, but he still won’t give me a 10% commission.) 

“Nice polish wood” (Have you tried their sausages?)

“No much energy use” (Is that why your brain won’t fire?)

“House close to chuck” (Your spelling is close to up-chuck)

“New gutters & screams” (…Just another night in the Hollywood Hills.)

My Pick ‘o The Week:

“Seller very faxible” (Uh, how did you squeeze him into the document feeder?)

Love these! I'm amazed that some pros don't have an extra pair of eyes to proof their ads!
