  • What Estate Agents Clches Actually Mean

    I thought this was quite amusing from Finance Daily...

    The Craigslist Guide to Estate Agent Clichés
    “Would suit D-I-Y enthusiast” = Would suit demolition
    “Bijou property” = Microscopic
    “Convenient for motorway access” = Triple-glazing a minimum
    “Efficient use of space” = “Cramped” doesn’t describe it
    “Incredible potential” = Incredible cost to do up
    “Delightfully secluded” = A week’s drive to the nearest shop
    “Up-and-coming-area” = Expect to be mugged
    “Sought-after location” = Flash post-code, inflated price
    “New price” = On the market a year; not a nibble
    Deceptively spacious”: = Guess who’s being deceptive
    “Borders on…” /”Moments from…” = In a criminal wasteland; 20 mins from civilisation

              What about the famous "just give it a coat of paint and sell it for £10000 more" - meaning please buy this property and ask me to sell it again, I'll make money even if you dont!
