"A Roach from Sunset" - Getting High on MLS Bloopers

Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty BRE # 01362887

Hi Folks - There were some hilarious real estate advertising bloopers this week, and I have also added a few of my all-time favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed discovering them!

Tokes and Blokes

“Come joint us at the open” (A high time hosted by Willie Nelson.)

“Aroach from Sunset Blvd” (Snoop Dogg's Christmas Wish List)

“New carpot ” (Why "slow your roll"?)

“Big yard w/ trees & lushes” (How did you get my address?)

“Closet to entertainment” (Attention West Hollywood!)


“Credit for pantsing” (I predict a full moon tonight.)

"Korean countertops" (I hope they weren't designed by Kim Jong-un's hair stylist.)

“Close to poopular nightspots” (You must be referring to the “Hollywood Bowel.”)

“We now have clear peed” (Not if you ate asparagus.)

“Splashes of eggplant, cream and espresso! (Martha Stewart has run amok.)

Things We Can Live Without

"Piano imploded in sale" (So did your career.)

“For your hussiest buyers” (Is there a hooker buyer pool?)

“Property had a facelit” (It appears someone else is lit, too…)

“High voltage wires not a problem” (Tell that to your flaming hair.)

This Week’s Eyebrow Raisers

“Barbarian wood” (Apparently Germans are a randy group.)

“Walk to park, balls” (If they are big enough to walk, you must have to sit in a wheelbarrow.


That's It for this week, friends. Remember: Spell well and sell!

Thanks for sharing a morning laugh!  Some folks apparently don't have anyone proofread their listing information or send it to the seller to review.  I am sure most if not all of these would have been caught by a seller anxious for the perfect listing description.

A very amusing collection! Fun, thank you for sharing these.

I had to email an agent last week and tell her I'm making an all cash offer on her $460,000 La Jolla Coastal Home, I'm coming over now to buy it as-is. She didn't get it at first, she forgot a Zero: $4,600,000 should have been the price. LOL

Thanks, Gwen Banta, for putting a smile on my face. Proof reading seems to be a skill that many agents do not possess.

I shake my head in wonder how they got the listing in the first place and that their clients have not complained about the description. Way to start the week with a smile.

Hi Gwen:

Thanks for a good laugh. I should start keeping my own list. I read about another "walking closet" the other day.
