This House is on its Last Leg - Listing Bloopers You can't Make up!

This House is on its Last Leg - Listing Bloopers You can't Make up!

As seen on the MLS!  Most agents put a lot of thought and effort into the MLS descriptions for their listings but even the best agents will occasionally come up with some real gems! 

Below are some descriptions from our local MLS I came across just recently that are just too good to keep to myself!   

While researching some vacant land for sale in Hernando County for a buyer, I came across this:

"23,756 SF - LARGER THEN MOST HALF ACRE LOTS"

Yep.  Do the math.  It may not be by much but wouldn't 0.55 ALWAYS be larger than 0.5?

 Florida Nature Spider by Silvia Dukes

Showing Instructions are a good source for somewhat strange yet useful information: 

"Please knock very loud because she is partially deaf."

 

And then there was this:

"THIS HOUSE IS ON ITS LAST LEG.

ONE BEDROOM FOR EACH INSECT INHABITING IT"

 ... every market has at least one property for which this would be an accurate description!

 

Who says Real Estate isn't any fun?

I like the one about an insect for every room. That will discourage a lot of buyers and only bring on the serious ones...LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Silvia,

One would have to ask, "Who would want to visit the house that is on its last leg?"  Just the though of the insects makes my skin crawl away from the listing! The Listing Agent obviously has a sense of  humor.

Hi Silvia, I got a kick out of the larger than most half acre lots... that is funny! I'm totally puzzled by the last one though ... what kind of niche were they marketing to?
