Canyon dropoff: MLS gaffes that sink listings

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

Hmmm… this week I couldn’t figure out if folks were dropping in, dropping out, or just dropping acid. The Blooper Scooper is back, my friends. Check out this week’s spectacular MLS gaffes:

Please Tell Me You Don’t Plan to Reproduce

“Beautiful progeny” (You must be referring to Brangelina’s kids.)

“High c’lings and interisting ankles” (Nonetheless, Jim, I think you could find a more flattering pair of high heels.)

“Large carpart” (Screamed the tourist while dodging metal on the Hollywood freeway.)

“Kitchen w/ pass trough” (I’ll alert the cows.)

“Proberty has extra space” (So does your brain.)

“Take advantage o floss” (Said the dentist while examining Gary Busey’s enormous teeth.)

Oops, Man Down

“New gavel in drive” (Dead judge under wife’s tire.)

“Just got shine” (Groused the bootlegger while trying to pull Bubba’s head out of the still.)

“Big deck to enjoy the stun” (If you’re going to taser ’em, I suggest you drag them off the property.)

“Contact me at.” (Seems that third martini was a killer.)

“You can see the canyon dropoff” (Screamed my drunken neighbor the during the last L.A.  quake.)

“For chefs and backers” (At last, a place for broken NFL players to call home.)

Overstated and PG – Rated

“Member to include approval” (Uh, I’ll be the judge as to whether your member meets approval.)

“Auction Day Cuntdown” (Oh dear Lord, do you know how much restraint I am exercising right now,  you bumbling idiot???)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell 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.
