Ugli fixer… like your career? Major MLS bloopers

From high roofs to hijinks, the MLS and the local real estate ads across the country were full of bloopers this week. Thanks to Jane Peters, Dick Beals and Patrick Martin for their hysterical contributions. Read ’em and weep:

It’s a Matter of Fact

“Lots of tees in back” (Lots of golf balls in pool.)

“Good build” (Is this a house or Matthew McConaughey?)

“Grate views” (Is that something you observed when you were face down on the sidewalk after Happy Hour?)

“Roof peeked at top” (IQ peaked at 80.)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“Ugli fixer but rooms in tack” (Perhaps that will make up for your lack of same…)

It’s a Matter of Perspective

“Views of Holywood sign” (There’s nothing holy about LaLa Land, pal.)

“Send all socs via email” (But how does one scan argyle?)

“Dogs need bee in houser” (Agent needs bee in schooler.)

“Water run-off needs attention” (This must be a nursing home)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

“Private beach for bondfires” (Why not – my stocks already went up in flames!)

It’s A matter of Time

“Enjoy hot tub – mold removed” (Enjoy Ward B – frontal lobe removed.)

“Beetiful lot” (I could have had a V8!)

“Stop at end – big dip” (I was just thinking the same thing…)

“Please take down lights nad lock droors” (After that comment, I’ll need to wash mine!)

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

It’s a Matter of Inhaling

Above clouds – it’s like flying” (You should know. Peace out, dude.)

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.

    One of my listings appeared in the MLS as "dead in street" instead of
    dead-end street. Maybe on 'The Walking Dead'!
