Have you ever had a buyer that was so enthusiastic about their potential home that they have a list a mile long of requirements? The front door must face east, the windows must be Pella brand, the carpet must be cut pile berber, it must be within two lots of a fire hydrant, needs to have wooden rods in the closet, not metal and of course the exterior paint must be barn red.
You already know what home they need and will love based on their actual needs and you’re going to show them that house, but in the meantime you may end up feeling a bit like the character in this video that is just so funny, we can all relate to (whether about a buyer or otherwise):
Can you relate? Maybe in a former career or if you’re one of our readers that is a designer first and foremost?
Funniest Realtor parody videos you’ll see all minute, guaranteed!
Who says the phenomenon of funny cat videos and stupid girl falling in a fountain while texting at the mall videos don’t spill over into the real estate world? We’ve highlighted three hilarious real estate videos below that are well worth the ten minutes to watch, even if you’re in the office and have to put headphones on.
Video 1: theagent.tv… the best part is at 2:29… MOVE!
Video 2: I Love You, Man… the best part is the whole clip. If you haven’t seen this horribly inappropriate movie, the lead character is a Realtor. He is awesome.
Video 3: Realtor loves his job. Or something… the best part is at 0:39. Is that the fireplace over there!?
Tell us in comments which video moment caught your eye!
A pig and a poke (The MLS “Menu”)
This week I actually got hungry reading the MLS and the LA Times real estate ads. Check out these bloopers so you can see what’s currently on the menu. I must warn you, you may want to hit the sauce and trim the fat:
I’m In the Mood For Food
“This hame is well stocked.” (Thank you, Porky Pig.)
“Hear is the glolden egg!” (…Which apparently comes scrambled.)
“Counter w/ new pop and fresh” ( Fat little dough boy included.)
“This one has alla the gravy” (Said Carmella Soprano as she proudly served her baked ziti.)
“You’ll marble when you see this beauty” (Bummer. At least Lot’s wife got to be a condiment.)
“We hamdle REOs” (That’s one way to bring home the bacon.)
Ham Fingers…So The Pork Lingers
“Small pad w/ view of peer” (Why go home when you can sleep at the office?)
“This is not a TIC” (…said Jeff Goldblum’s hands.)
“Cabinets w/ polished mental inserts” (Listing w/ punch drunk mental idiot.)
“This is a Short Shale” (Say that five times really fast.)
Is It Happy hour Yet?
“Just done finished floored” (Bottle done, finished agent on floor.)
“Cork floors in bar aria” (Methinks the cork was popped several drinks ago.)
“Stunning hammerred doors” (Offered by stumbling hammered dufus.)
“This condonimiun has all the trimmins” (Sauced agent has the tremorrrrs.)
SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE – THE FINALE!
“Bask in the warm sin by the pool” (Yay – party at Charlie Sheen’s pad!)
The great un-sell – MLS whoppers!
Did you ever wonder how some houses get sold? Scott Friedman just posted a great article, “What Sells a Home and Why Most Agents Won’t Like This Article.”
I concur with everything he said…but he should have added something about listing remarks. After all, some of the comments listed below would frighten even the most courageous buyers.
So here you are: THE GREAT UN-SELL!
Houses From Malfunction Junction
“Big tard out back.” (A big tard wrote this.)
“Hug garage” (A man must have written this.)
“Souring ceilings” (New on market – Miss Muffet’s house of curds.)
“Zoned for 2 swellings” (The Inflammation Proclamation.)
“Newly stained bedroom” (Newly married sellers.)
“Bi micro” (An appliance designed to please the wife and the hubby.)
“Furnace has new boils” (Source of Conflagration in the house of Inflammation)
“Seller admits to old & bad plumbing.” (Sadly, it happens to all of us…)
“Seller got new wiring he thinks” (A Lobotomy dichotomy?)
“Seller needs to move.” (Seller ate at a road side cart in Tijuana.)
“Seller says house has new brainage” (Apparently agent has no brainage.)
“House vacant, call for eazy abcess” (Pass the penicillin!)
“Must be linder approved” (Or what – there will be a truffle scuffle?)
Extras You Cannot Pass Up
“Builtin BBQ pot” (Smoke ‘em and toke ‘em)
“Shiny ammonimum floors” (Shiny seller with peeing problem!)
“Bonus in first moth” (Presenting the world’s smallest bonus…)
“Stereo system with five tones” (No wonder Best Buys went out of business.)
“House with laundrey shoot” (I see dead people.)
And my favorite:
“FHA. Need FICO. Fast COE wanted. Use foot covers when interring. Re no carpet staining” (Listing DOA, Staining S.U.S.P.I.C.I.O.U.S….CSI wanted – F.A.S.T….no S.H._T.!)
