“Sellers Mooed Out” – And Other Strange MLS Utterances


Is it any wonder I drink, folks? From beef to bull, this week’s MLS bloopers left me in tears. Thanks to Ben Goheen, Patty DaSilva and Jane Peters for their hysterical contributions. It’s nice to know that not all the crazies live in L.A. Check these out:

Out and About

“Preview only for out agents” (Proudly offered by Barney Frank Realty.)

“Sellers mooed out” (I suspect they had a beef about something…)

“Bank REO – sumbit with buyers’ credenza” (If I knew how to squeeze a credenza into a fax machine, I’d own the bank!)

“Bldg pans for bedroom” (Stackable bedpans, anyone?)

“Asphalt roll and dilled” (Throw in some tuna and let’s call it lunch.)

“You’ll love the accent” (I will if it’s coming out of the mouth of Antonio Banderas.)

Dark Humor

“Large blackyard for kids” (I believe that’s called a freeway.)

“Has pool and clubhose” (How clever – custom hosiery for club feet!)

“Palmergranted trees in back” (With your spelling skills,  I suggest you find one with a branch that can support a noose.)

“Tennis and shovel ball” (It takes a tool to know one.)

“Fore in good condition” (Uh…foreclosure or foreskin, Rabbi Ron?)

“Ceil’g fin in foyer’ (That explains the chandelier  in the aquarium.)

“The Rambling Rose Awards Go To:

“The huge outback is truly awaiting so tlc and can become a oasis” (…Said the confused kangaroo while smoking a doobie and pulling listing sheets from his delivery pouch.)

“Three great reasons to buy now: Low rates, low prices.” (Straight from the Rick Perry School of Oratory.)

Zinger of the Month

“Needs a little tlc to bring back its full shite”  (Yes, sweetie, you’re right – now put down the mirror, stop examining your mug, and go back to bed.)

That’s it for this week, folks – 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.
