The MLS - Laughing All the Way!

By
Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty BRE # 01362887

I just returned from an extended trip to discover that some things never change. There were so many funny misspellings and blunders in the MLS this week that I am trying to think of a way to get the bloopers into pill form. I think the MLS should be used for medicinal purposes - it's a great alternative to laughing gas! Check out some of my favorites:

Don't Tempt Me

"For short sale status, please maul us' (If you're the lender, it would be my pleasure.)

"Please teat locks before leaving" (That's udderly ridiculous.)

"Reck room in basement'" (And so is your career...)

"Shed behind" (I will if you can unload that fat gut of yours...)

"Double pain windoos" (Not nearly as painful as your spelling skills.)

That Had to Hurt...

"In-grown pool" (Inbred agent.)

"We want submission" (Says you, Idi Amin.)

"Incomplete packages talk longer" (Incomplete brains should develop longer.)

"Seller raking kennel" (Well, that's certainly a load off...)

"Big bang for the buicks" (Thank you, Lee Iaccoca)

Even A Martini Can't Fix This

"Built with attention to tail" (Hmm...sounds like a perfect home for Charlie Sheen)

"Owner says sail fast" (Whatever floats your boat, Noah...) 

"Loft can be extra bad" (So can I after a few martinis...)

"Pot plants excluded" (Call me mellow yellow, but methinks someone has already pilfered them...)

"Large breakfast bra in kitch" (Cups included, I suppose...)

You Can't Touch This

"Theater and ballsroom" (For those who enjoy popcorn and nuts.)

Gwen, you should write a book.  Makes you wonder if sellers ever read their listings.

Leolinda, I sometimes think that the only thing some realtors read is their paychecks!
