Pride of Owdership: something stinks on the MLS

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 go and wreck yourself.

Where the Bodies Lie…

Something in America has died, my friends – spelling! But how much fun would we have if we couldn’t occasionally laugh at some of these ridiculous bloopers from the MLS and the local real estate ads? Some of these are worth donning a party hat:

“Newly planted” (RIP – Just like your listing.)

“Windows have plantations” (Let me guess…Keith Richards’ grow house?)

“Corn early” (Agricultural update provided by Chief Sitting Bull.)

“Beautiful craftmanshit” (…So it’s a pile of crap like your career?)

Decomposed and Deconstructed

“Details from a bye gone era (Kiss your seller bye while you’re at it.)

“Was once a boaring house” (Talk about groveling in pig s__t!)

“This will put a smell on your buyer’s face” ( So you’re gonna slap him upside the head with a mackerel?)

“Pride of Owdership” (That ain’t the only thing that stinks about this listing!)

“A cat above” (Grinned Jerry just before he drooped an anvil on Tom’s foot.)

In Requiem

“Will sail fast” (Mumbled Axl Rose just before he hurled a phone off his twelfth floor balcony.)

“At end of cure” (Pronounced Harriet Hair-Wrecker as flames erupted from the curling iron.)

“Drop-don stairway” (Well, that explains Don King’s lack of mental acuity…)

“Drawinf for free oPad” (You’re just one key stroke short of a Depends, pal…) Hint: Look at the keyboard.

“Two many changes to describe” (Let me help: One – Chastity Bono before, and Two – Chastity Bono after.)

My Fave

“Swing fur kids” (Why swing the little buggers when you can shave ’em?)

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.

    I have no objection to making fun of spelling.  But, if you’re going to do it double check your own work.
