Home Buying Euphemisms and Lingo

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Buyer's Broker of Northern Michigan, LLC

The National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents has published a free report on real estate euphemisms being used around the country. The report, titled "Home Buying Euphemisms and Lingo, How to Read Between the Lines When You Are Home Shopping" helps buyers better understand some of today's property descriptions and contains NAEBA member survey responses both serious and humorous. The report is available as a free download on the NAEBA site: 2008 Report on Home Buying Euphemisms and Lingo

Here are a couple humorous examples:

"Cozy Home" - too small to fit your big-screen tv.

"Easy Access to Everywhere" - backs up to an expressway.

The Report is fun and easy to read, and should give homebuyers some valuable food for thought when reviewing real estate sales materials.
