I searched through the multiple listing service tonight for my buyer who is desperate to find a home in this quiet "holiday" housing market. What was encouraging was that I found two or three very strong candidates for her. What was discouraging was that I found two homes listed that had "dinning rooms" instead of "dining rooms."
I don't want to sound like the grouchy grammar nazi, but misspellings on that order are pretty egregious.
Whenever I am helping folks buy or sell homes, I assure them of my awareness that this is one of the most expensive transactions of their lives. This means that the care and attention I give them throughout the process needs to be equal to the amount of their investment. If I'm listing a home and putting it on the multiple listing service for potential buyers, it behooves me, and does service to my client if I check to see if dining room is spelled with one "n" or two.
And that's about all I have to say on that subject. It's almost Christmas time, and I don't want to destroy the good cheer in the air. Besides, I need to get down to the kitschin and clean up, then put my car in the garaszhe in case it rains tonight . . . .
