"Send beds to listing agent" - Are YOU Asleep at the Keyboard?

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

Guy bouncing on a Bed

We may have just taken a holiday, but there certainly was no holiday from real estate bloopers on the MLS, as well as on the web and in local ads. Georgina Hunter  from beautiful Maui found a lovely blooper this week involving valves,  AR's Bruce Walter sent some great gaffes from Indiana, and Fred Glick from Philadelphia is back with Fred's Follies: Stupid Real Estate Questions From the Web. Wende Schoof from San Francisco and Jane Peters from Los Angeles also found some doozies. Please enjoy:

Pardon me?

"Send beds to listing agent"  (Why bother - you're already asleep on the job.)

"Tediously maintained grounds" (Offered by Hoe-n-Hernia Realty)

"Brand New - Crowning soon" (I suggest you call your obstetrician.)

"Blank approval required" (Then look in the mirror, pal.)

"Additional guess house" (The only guess is how you got your license.)

"Sinkin living room" (Sunken career.)

"Nice Interior shed" (Lovely - an in-house outhouse designed by  Jethro Clampett , your local indoor plumbing specialist.)

You've Got To be Kidding

"We can fiance you" (Good luck with that - I can't even get a date.)

"New lower pride" (I hear ya, pal. In this economy, I'd sell a skating rink to a legless corpse if I could get a signature.)

"New Pool for Sumner" (If you're referring to Sumner Redstone, he needs a new pool like I need crotch itch.)

"Nice house in Inland Umpire"  (Hey, Abbott and Costello - "Who's on first?")

"Approved building plans... a $10,000 valve" (Either this is a house in the middle of  Hoover Dam, or Dr Michael DeBakey is back from the dead.)

Fred's Follies (Question from Trulia)

Question:"i am realtor i was wandering how can get listings becuse had work before"

Answer: Dear Idiot, I suspect it is your mind that is wandering. I suggest you remove the icepick from your cranium before you honk and proceed.  You mentioned that you "had work before." I am sorry to inform you that weaving baskets on Ward 6 doesn't qualify you for anything other than politics. In Washington, confusion is an art form, and you are a natural. Good luck - you have my vote.

These are hysterical. Makes you wonder if someone is using their 'smart' phone to write this stuff.

Jay, the Hollywood Bowl is a Chinese dish you can only order if you are wearing sunglasses and have an agent ;) Actually, it's an outdoor concert stage and a pavilion shaped like a bowl. The seats vary from boxes to bleachers. Thus, on warm California nights, we watch magical performances under the stars, surrounded by the sent of eucalyptus and night-blooming jasmine. They offer every time of music and dance performance you can imagine. Oh - and you can bring a picnic and booze!

Karen, I am constantly amazed at how smart phones substitute the wrong words. I think auto-fill is tantamount to landfill!

Thank you so much, Navona. And incidentally, I once caught a man jumping on a bed at an open house. Not a kid - a grown man! I was so flabbergasted, all I could say was, "Is this your way of sending a message to the owner because he's ba__ing your wife?" He looked at me as though I were the nut case!

Gwen:

Your bloopers are priceless.  How can agents publish information that is go garbled with so many misspelled words and grammatical errors?  What were they thinking?

I love the bloopers!  I'll have to start keeping a list because every now and then I come across some that truly make me raise an eyebrow.

Juli came up with a good one for crowning.  I have no idea what that would mean either.  Another end of week giggle.
