I thought that I would put my own humorous spin on "buzz" words usually found in real estate ads, and wanted to share them with my clients. Real estate ads are used to highlight the features of a home, so that buyers are able to visualize what the home might be like and decide to view it.
Obviously, these are not the true meanings, but I think real estate buyers and investors can appreciate them as I recall showing a property to a client that was advertised as "ocean view", but unless you were standing on the roof line, I think the only view of any "water" was of the neighbor's kiddie pool. Enjoy and feel free to send me some of your own "definitions" that may be posted on our blog!
Handyman Special - you are not handy enough to tackle this project unless you are Mike Holmes, Shell Busey or Bob Villa.
Cozy -- small, until the ex moves out and then home description is amended to read as "spacious and open"
Unique -- not a style most would appreciate
Family room -- basement from the 1970's
Immaculate - you could eat off the floors, but why would you when you have a dining room?
