Marketing typos 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 you will be inspired to check yourself before you go and wreck yourself.

It’s Blooper Day – welcome back to the Dunce Corner, friends. Have you ever wondered how some agents continue to get business? Well, when you see what some agents have typed into the MLS without spell checking, you might spit out your coffee, so be warned.

As always, thanks to Jane Peters of Los Angeles for her quick eye… and even quicker wit.

Ya think?

“Clean limes throut” – (Those limes would have been a nice complement to all those Tequila shooters you obviously downed.)

“Don’t wait too must list”  (Said Bubba to his reflection in the commode when he heard “Last call.”)

“Open hose with cheese and wine” (Sign in a window in a high-end hooker district.)

“New website and blo” (Well that explains the white powder all over your desktop.)

“Send daft letter with clients quals” (Send daft agent to corner with Dunce hat.)

Okay, so you don’t think!

“Three bedroom, one badroom” (This must be the home of Christian Grey.)

“First peeview Sunday” (Thanks, but if I wanted a peeview, I’d hang out at Aunt Bea’s nursing home.)

“Open house with launch” (Said your seller to his wife when he saw your spelling.)

“Not intend to solicot agents clients who hav agent” (Wow – for a minute there I was worried.)

I Get It –  You’re Brain Dead…

“State of the arc” (Uh, let me guess, Noah – knee-deep in animal s_ _t?)

“We change daily” (Who knew multiple personalities could be a selling point?)

“Healthy salt hair” (In my opinion, the only healthy salt is around the rim of a margarita.)

“Get a bang for a buck” (Heidi Fleiss’s job description?)

Lobotomy Finale

“Call for privates showing”  (Rep. Anthony Weiner’s excuse for his Dangle-n-Dial escapades.)

“Thurs – Semenar on loan packages” (I’m not quite sure what you’re implying, but my loan officer just smiled and lit up a cigarette…)

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.
