What I know about AI...Not much!!! 

I was hesitant to learn this technology. It's not that I don't like to learn new things. It was mainly from the standpoint of it would be just another thing to keep up with! My motto is "if you aren't learning, you aren't earning!" My office had a zoom ChatGPT training so I signed up to see what this AI is all about.

The training was only about ChatGPT (I am not even sure what the initals GPT stands for?) a new AI platform that writes your descriptions on the MLS. You ask it a question such as "Please write a description of the propery at 3930 Clear Water Lane in 1000 words or less"

This is what it came back with:

3930 Clear Water Lane: A Haven of Tranquility and Modern Living

Nestled in the heart of Nevada, Texas, 3930 Clear Water Lane epitomizes the perfect blend of contemporary elegance and serene living. This remarkable residence stands as a testament to refined craftsmanship and thoughtful design, offering an exceptional lifestyle for those seeking comfort, space, and natural beauty.

As you approach this picturesque property, a sense of tranquility envelopes you. The well-manicured landscape, adorned with lush greenery and colorful blooms, sets the stage for what lies beyond the front door—a home that promises both sanctuary and sophistication.

Step inside, and you're greeted by an expansive interior illuminated by an abundance of natural light pouring through large windows. The open floor plan seamlessly connects the living spaces, creating an inviting atmosphere perfect for relaxation and entertainment alike.

The gourmet kitchen stands as the heart of the home, boasting state-of-the-art appliances, ample counter space, and elegant finishes that cater to the needs of culinary enthusiasts and social gatherings.

The master suite is a retreat within itself, offering a spacious layout, a luxurious ensuite bath, and a private sanctuary to unwind after a long day. Additional bedrooms provide comfort and privacy for family or guests, each thoughtfully designed with comfort in mind.

Beyond the interiors, the outdoor space is a haven all on its own. Step out onto the patio and find yourself embraced by a serene ambiance, perfect for morning coffee or evening gatherings. The vast backyard presents a canvas for your imagination, offering endless possibilities for relaxation, gardening, or outdoor activities.

Located in a desirable neighborhood, 3930 Clear Water Lane provides a sense of community while maintaining privacy and tranquility. Easy access to local amenities, schools, and recreational areas ensures a convenient and fulfilling lifestyle for it

WHAT ?!! I was flabbergasted! This is so untraditional of what I would write to describe my listing! I like to give more details such as how many bedrooms, primary bedroom informantion, whether or not the home has upgrades such as granite countertops, the type of flooring etc... The ChatGPT was more like reading a novel !!

I did use some of the fancy flowing wording but stuck with my more traditional description. The home sold in the first weekend so "Take That" AI !!

I will continue to learn AI as it presents itself but only in small doses! In the meantime, I am reading labels making sure my food does not have Bioengineered Ingredients!

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO!?

People buy on emotion first and logic second. In MLS public remarks both must be included. AI sometimes fails to include the logic and focuses on the emotions, the esoteric descriptions.

Hi Tracy,
Reading food labels might be better for you than learning AI. 😂

I am curious, did your class include the warning NOT to use ChatGPT for anything requiring factual information? It's more of a creative tool.  I've had some fun experimenting with it.

BTW, This is what ChatGPT stands for:
Chat Generative Pre-Trained Transformer

Hi Carol, If they did I missed it. Thanks for the meaning which I laughed out loud at!!!

Hi Tracy- I love it that you shared what you learned with us!!!   From some of the posts I've read written by AI or ChatGPT my takeaway is that it sounds a bit robotic.

I am not much of a writer, so I could see how ChatGPT might help my descriptions be better, haha.  Like you, I would want all the pertinent details in there though.

Hi Brian, Right ! Buyers don't necessarily want all the fluff, they want to know how many toliets the home has! 😅

Tracy Lee Parker,

Thanks for sharing the AI  MLS description. After the first sentence, I only want to know  the style and how many BRs, Baths, Acreage, parking, etc.

Hello Tracy - I like the approach you took with this post.  Learning about the topic continues to be eye opening for me. 

It seems to create a spectacle for some.  Others get a sense of a different kind.  Perhaps it's deja vu or something somewhat familiar but foreign enough to frighten them in some way.   To read the different entries has been a fascinating experience.

A few things about AI:
You have to be very clear and feed it the right information in order to get a good output.
You can't expect AI to know anything about a particular property - you have to tell it.
It helps to also tell it to write in simple American English.
Also, AI does not obey word counts or negative instructions - don't tell it what not to do, tell it what to do.


For example, I entered the following into ChatGPT:

Write a brief and concise property description of a property with these characteristics:
Contemporary home, Nevada, Texas, 2933 sqft, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, covered back patio great for entertaining, near Lake Lavon,  3 car garage, gourmet kitchen, granite countertops, new cabinets.

This is what I got:

This contemporary home, located in Nevada, Texas, boasts a spacious 2933 sqft interior with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Ideal for entertaining, the property features a covered back patio and is conveniently situated near the picturesque Lake Lavon. The residence includes a 3-car garage, ensuring ample parking and storage space. Inside, the gourmet kitchen is equipped with granite countertops and new cabinets, adding a touch of modern luxury to this stylish home.

It will be even better if you input more details and amenities.
The great thing about it is, that you can simply enter the amenities and the AI will write something that makes sense.

It can be a great time-saver for agents.

I like your description better than what AI wrote.

This helps. My zoom call did not specify putting in more details and  they said you could say word count!  I did not know about the negative instructions. Thanks Dario!

Jan 29, 2024 06:52 AM
Dario Ferreira

Tracy Lee Parker , word count is very unreliable with AI. You can get lucky, but you are better off using stuff like:
- write 3 short paragraphs about xxx
- write 4 long paragraphs about yyy
- write a short introduction about zzz

For a blog post you can try something like:
Write a blog post about Nevada, Texas, with 5 main heading sections.  Each section should have 2-3 paragraphs.

Negative instructions may work sometimes, but the majority of the time, they don't.

Tracy Lee Parker Thanks for sharing the AI generated description...which is a big "heck no" for me...  I prefer to be specific to the property and  believe most buyers will not fall for all the fluff.  They want specifics.  Thank you for a great blog!!

See Dario reply above we may be able to use it as a guide with a "little fluff"!

Love this, Tracy and like others, I'm STILL catching up on last month's posts! 

I write my own MLS listing but, dump my write-up into AI and ask for 7 versions (so they're not the exact same on all of my sites, postcards, brochures and ads). That has worked well for me.

I was also told that for a quick listing write-up, you can tell CGPT, "Write a listing in bullet-point style for me for a 4-bedroom, 3-bath home on 123 Main Street that is filled with natural light, is an open floorplan, with new kitchen (cabinets, countertops, stainless steel high-end appliances), gleaming hardwoods, sunroom. HVAC is 10 years old, crawl space is sealed and the roof is 3 years old. Location is highly desired and near everything Charlotte has to offer..." Supposedly the more information you give AI, the better quality of information you get back. 

This is what I got:

🌟 New Listing Alert! 🌟
