What does all that real estate jargon really mean??

We’ve all seen the yard signs. “Waterfront Property!” ….. “Charming” … “Convenient Location”. But does it really mean what you think it does? Waterfront property… a lovely lake right outside your wrap-around porch? Or maybe it means the backyard floods.

We all take some liberties and embellish, don’t we? That fish was how big? And yes, we Realtors are sometimes guilty of the same. Hey, we have to sell all kinds of houses, right? The good, the bad and the ugly. But, this list is just for fun… so please don’t take it as gospel!

“Diamond in the rough” … Needs way too much work

“I’m beautiful inside” …. Butt-ugly on the outside

 “Don’t curb appraise” … See #2

“Perfect for a walk-out basement” … Goat property

“Endless possibilities” …. Needs a bottomless checkbook

“Cozy” … Tiny!

“Charming” … Tiny!

“Great Starter Home” … 4 walls and a roof but not much else

“Low maintenance Yard” … Dirt

“Unique” … More butt-ugly

“Move in ready” … Very outdated, shag carpet anyone?

“Convenient location” … Backs up to I-65

Again, just for fun. Ready to go out and find your own “Diamond in the Rough”? Call me, I’ll find the perfect house for YOU!
