MLS Fail – The Visual Tour Failure [Episode 9]

Sorry kiddles and bits but I’m taking a blatant short cut today. On my way to ReBarCampPHX I changed planes in Houston and I’m convinced I’m part of a pandemic something or other. Fortunately, an anonymous donor sent me video to share that I thought was a classic and I’m all about just pasting a little bit of code and heading back to some place I can be horizontal. If you don’t see the video below click: Visual Tour Fail.

This is where I need your help, kids. Have you ever seen a picture in the MLS that just made you shake your head? This is the place where the thought and the photo collide. If you have a photo you’d like to share email MLSfailpics(at) We’ll make you famous and link to your blog.

    Hope you feel better. You’re not associating with any swine, are you? Any more than usual?

    Austin, this is a one time, short cut post. I got a little bug that ended up turning quite serious and I am just getting back on my feet.

    I just didn’t want to leave Lani and Ben hanging since I pretty new to the site so I took a short cut.

    I’ll be back to my regular, smart ass self next week. I promise.

    I hate that you were sick and thrilled we got to hang at ReBarCampPHX – look forward to the mext time I get the twitterzilla humor IRL!

    I’m not buying it – this has got to be a joke. I know there’s plenty of agents out there that can turn the biggest dump into a luxury home, but this just can’t be real.

    You’re probably right Matt.
