What do secret real estate listing "Code Words" really mean?

Do you ever wonder what "Real Estate" secret terms actually mean?

Many listings have secret Realtor "code" words such as:

"Artistic Bungalow"

"Dream Home"

"Natural Landscaping"

"Updated Bathroom"

"Energy Efficient"

"Wood Like Floors"
Real estate newspaper listing "Artistic Bungalow"


"Mother In Law Quarters"

"Secluded Setting"

"Bonus Room"




"Custom Drapes"




Well the answer is?.......... there is no answer. The terms are often used in the eye of the beholder and have "creative" meanings. To see a humorous video on how these terms are often used, take a look: Realtor secret code words to describe a listing


Bonus Room

A "bonus room" to one person may be a fully developed game room with hardwood floors, pool table and a fireplace. To another, the "bonus room" may be unfinished walls for storage of 30 year old card board boxes. An "energy efficient" dryer may mean the latest modern dryer with highly efficient energy usage. To another, "energy efficient" dryer may mean a clothes line.

It is kind of fun to actually see the home and "interpret" some of the code words.



A "Cozy" home to one person may mean a nome nestled on a charming street along side a brook with a picket fence. To another "Cozy" may mean....this home is "tiny". You may have to breathe in to get past the furniture.
