Decoding Real Estate Ads



a "Unique" property


Remodeling New York and real estate go hand in hand, and despite the fact that this surfaced a few months back, we thought super-broker Barbara Corcoran's demystification of real estate terminology was worth posting on this forum...

1. Cozy (too small)

2. Charming (too old)

3. Original condition (appliances are 50 years old)

4. Needs TLC (it's a dump)

5. Conveniently located (noisy)

6. Desirable neighborhood (this little house has been way
overpriced because the neighborhood has some snob appeal)

7. Efficient kitchen (too small to fit two adults)

8. One-car garage (you can drive your Chevy in, but can't get out)

9. Peek at the park/river/mountains (if you angle your mirror just so)

10. Useable land (no trees)

11. Beachfront steal (no hurricane insurance available at any price)

12. Country living (too far from anywhere to drive to work)

13. Must see inside (outside is ugly)

14. Unique (hard to sell)

15. Just available (previous owner just died on the premises, hope you don't mind)
