This is a recent set of remarks for a home for sale that was
actually printed in the Multiple Listing Service. Really??
Here's what it really says: Estate home! Kitchen with
42-inch cherry-stained cabinets with satin nickel pulls, granite countertops,
center island in kitchen with bar overhang (for stools), tile backsplash,
stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner gas cooktop! Family room with
coffered ceiling, gas log fireplace with marble surround and custom mantle with
wainscoting and cherry-stained built-ins! Keeping room with stacked stone
fireplace! Exquisite master bedroom with trey ceiling and upgraded carpet!
Master bath with large cherry-stained vanity with granite countertops and tile
floors! Theater room with sconce lighting!
Not only does this "REALTOR Speak" leave a buyer scratching his head, but
it's a disservice to a seller when someone can't understand what's so great
about his home.
