"No shaved walls" - Are Your MLS Remarks Off By A Hair?

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

It’s Wednesday – time for the weekly blooper reel. I suggest we add a new word to Websters Dictionary – Goof-reading. You may agree after you peruse these hilarious MLS and real estate advertising bloopers:

Roll ‘em Out

“We’re rolling out the welcome matt” (Perhaps Matt should consider a low carb diet.)

“Lily scattered about” (Uh, I suggest you call an ambulance.)

“Just need youre imagenation” (What you need is a rehab.)

“Out of time to shop aground?” (Yes, I’m busy bailing out the boat.)

“Open every weakend til sold” (The “weakend” is the area above your neck.)

Round ‘em Up

“Free drawing &.” (…And what – quartering?)

“Varnished apartment for rent” (Tarnished agent for hire.)

“Invest your tex refund” (We did that with George W. Bush…and then refunded him.)

“Pack the tucks – you’re home” (I’ll alert my hemorrhoids.)

“No need to chop around” (Said Clarice to Hannibal Lector as he eyed her lamb.)

Mow ‘em Down

“No shaved walls” (“Wax on, wax off,” spoketh Mr. Miyagi.)

“Open 7 days weakly” (And marketed in the same manner…)

“Show offf art” (Try saying that fast three times.)

“Yard with white bitch trees” (Sounds to me like a good area for logging.)

Pick ‘o the Week

“Chan marks boundary” (That explains the yellow snow in Chinatown.)

 

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell Well and Sell!\r more real estate humor, please visit Gwen at www.sherlockofhomes.blogspot.com/ or Agent Genius. For all your real estate needs, please go to www.LAhomesite.com.

Actually, Jan, I get contributions from all over the US. Be sure to send me some from your MLS if you find any... although people may be much more literate in your area :-)

Donna, maybe that came from an agent who had his a_ _ kicked in too many times!

Good morning Gwen,

I see a pattern emerging, obviously too many are relying on spell check for "week"!

Lisa, I think auto-fill and Siri are two more culprits. I see a lot of remarks on the MLS that had to have been sent via an iPhone. I see those every weak. Uh, I mean week :-)

I have seen that twice now, Dick. Maybe Tucks is doing subliminal advertising!
