Marketing bloopers that will amaze and offend

Realtors that don’t proof read their property descriptions in the MLS inevitably end up in the hall of shame here at AGBeat. We hand pick these bloopers in hope that they will be inspired to check theyself before they wreck theyself. Snap.



Marketing bloopers galore

It’s Blooper Day, friends, and all I can say is, “bombs away!” If you want a few hearty laughs, check out these MLS and advertising listing remarks that self-detonated:


“Seller wood carry” (Another case of an Oregon lumberjack making a wrong turn and ending up in Los Angeles.)

“New – it’s here – art deco!” (Uh, you’re a little late to the party, Mr. Van Winkle.)

“Medi room with theatre seating” (How do you get the popcorn through the IV?)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“No deal with lawyers” (How does it feel to be sporting a big target on your forehead, Sue-mi?)

Fire in the Hole!

“Must remove and cover feet” (If I’d known I’d have to walk on my hands, I would have worn fancy underwear.)

“Termite and dryrat present” (You must be a real treat at the office gift exchange.)

“Near elementary and missle school nearby” (Hence the giant, smoking hole in the side of the house.)

“New sail price” (Why bother – your ship just sank.)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“Good place to raise a chile” (I suppose that’s important if you’re a gardener in Tijuana.)


“Best dal in Hollywood” (Can I get tandoori chicken with that?)

“Call for annointment” (That depends – are you just going to dip me in oil, or will there be a Fat Fryer involved?)

“Elec gate not in worming cond” (That’s exactly why gates should not be fed uncooked pork.)

“House on hill needs fixing” (If you are referring to the Capitol Building, I concur.)

Two Targets Too Big to Miss!

“Steamer in shower” (Sounds like something that should have been left in the toilet.)

“Enjoy tennis and shuffleballs” (That explains why you’re not wearing a jock strap.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: spell well and sell!

Written By

I wear several hats: My mink fedora real estate hat belongs to Sotheby’s International Realty on the world famous Sunset Strip. I’M not world famous, but I've garnered a few Top Producer credits along the way. I also wear a coonskin writer's cap with an arrow through it, having written a few novels and screenplays and scored a few awards there, too. (The arrow was from a tasteless critic.) My sequined turban is my thespian hat for my roles on stage, and in film and television, Dahling. You can check me out in all my infamy at LinkedIn,, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
