“Lots of chiropractor” - Does Your MLS Listing Need Adjustment?

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

Just when you think you’ve seen ‘em all, a new batch of MLS and real estate advertising bloopers pops up. This group had me in tears:

A Few Good Laughs

“Walk to clinic” (A sales pitch for those who itch!)

“Good valu for the moaning” (Sign on a hooker at Hollywood and Vine.)

“Breeze and sunshit” (It wasn't the sun, pal…it was that large bird with the toilet paper on his shoe.)

“Dip into the pook” (I take it "pook" is code for “tequila”?)

“Style and elephants” (This home must have sold for peanuts.)

Now I Can’t Breathe

“Beutiful Spinach decor” (This gives new meaning to “green building.”)

“Lovely graftsman home” ( …Chirped the tour guide to a rapt group of White House visitors.)

“Lots of chiropractor” (I suggest you call for an adjustment.)

“Buy only one or separately” (Hint: When you’re seeing double, the keg is empty.)

Rolling On The Floor

“Cook off in the pool” (Reason # 1 not to swim while blow-drying your hair.)

“Hellside home” (Sign on the cheap plots of Forest Lawn Cemetary.)

“Highin building” (That’s fairly obvious, Sunshine.)

“Colorful generation garden” (It generated a nitwit.)

"Graveful living” (That’s an oxymoron, moron.)

I Think I Wet My Pants

“Owner is licentious agent” - (Well that explains the naked guy in the kitchen.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell Well and Sell!

Lisa, we must know the same guy!

Jane, I suspect you and I both have run into this guy at local open houses. When we have drinks, I'll spill the beans...

Jim, there's no cure for stupid.

Well, you've got to give the licentious agent credit.  He's up front, out front or whatever.  He's probably responsible for the dip into the pook too.  I hope you're off to a great weekend, Gwen!  What's the scoop on our daughter's show?

Gwen, I love the BEUTIFUL SPINACH DECOR comment and your response!  I do, however, think it was quite appropriate for the LA crowd.  Think who might have shown up to view the house if the decor was advertised as:

LEAFY GREENS

Hey Gwen.........

Your response to Jay, "that's my ex :-)"............

You must have a very understanding ex, as you subscribe so many evil things to him.

Good thing that you only have one.

Keep the Martinis flowing.

Bloppers are always fun. After dealing with some buyers and sellers I'd like to get "highin building" while having a "cook off in the pool"

Gwen:  Debbie re blogged this and it is hilarious.  Thank you so much for this morning's laugh.  I am still thinking of the licentious agent.

@ Ronald:  based on Mike Cooper's comment ( #17: "What's the scoop on OUR daughter's show")I would say that Gwen has an outstanding EX!  ^_~

Bruce, think who would have shown up if it said "Fruits, Flakes and Nuts." I love L.A!

Say it ain't so Gwen!  That guy has a dimple in his chin!  You didn't fall for that, did you? 

Still, I don't believe it.  Say it ain't so!

Jay, if you are referring to the guy in the photo – that's not my ex… But he does remind me of my ex's mother :-)
