Realtor.com will not allow anything that appears to violate the Fair Housing Act and that's a good thing. But....what's wrong with this?

Here's the description that I wrote for this newly listed house as I inserted it into realtor.com.  It's listed for $69,000.  I was putting the listing into realtor.com and it was shot back to me. Two times!  I thought they'd made a mistake.  They refused to accept this description and said it was a possible violation of the Fair Housing Act.

Somebody worked really hard on this house in Kensett Arkansas. They painted the large rooms pretty colors, made a new kitchen, added a bath, added central heat and air, covered with siding and added lots of closet space. You could move in with almost no work required. A roomy 1954 sq. ft. That's $35.31 per sq. ft!! Wow!

That was my description for my new listing at Kensett Arkansas.202 W Searcy St  I'd like for you to read this description and  tell me what's wrong with it.  You'll be just as amazed as I was. 

Just for the fun of it, I'd like to see if you can figure it out!!

Okay, here's how I had to rewrite it.

Somebody worked really hard to improve this house in Kensett Arkansas. They painted the large rooms pretty colors, made a new kitchen, added a bath, added central heat and air, covered with siding and added lots of closet space. You could move in with almost no work required. A roomy 1954 sq. ft. That's $35.31 per sq. ft!! Wow!

They rejected "hard on."   Geeeeeeeshhhhh................I still don't get it.....

That's pretty funny that the automated computer picked up on such a dirty thing...
