Tell me you are! Please tell me that is why the following MLS listing appears as it does!
Thanks to blog-reader Paul for sending me this MLS listing, which I think is, quite possibly, the worst MLS listing I’ve ever seen in ten years of selling real estate…
Kudos to Justin Trudeau for standing up and saying that he’s smoked marijuana.
Raise your hand if you haven’t?
I’ve smoked weed; many times, in fact. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t. Would anybody believe that? I haven’t smoked weed since February of 2005, but would you really believe me if I said I never smoked weed during four years of university?
What are the odds that 43-year-old politician, John Baird, has never smoked pot? Same goes for other Canadian politicians, Jason Kenney, Michelle Rempel, Peter Mackay, and Alison Redford who all said in THIS article that they have never, ever, not once, ever, smoked pot. Out of the five of them – how many do you think are lying? Odds are – at least three of them, maybe four…
But enough about marijuana, let’s talk about drugs!
I think the concept of “the worst MLS listing I have ever seen” might be overblown, or perhaps the idea has lost all meaning, since I’ve definitely used this tag a few times.
MLS listings can be bad for many reasons, each one exposing the listing agent for incompetence, laziness, cheapness, or all of the above!
Spelling mistakes are inexcusable, but understandable.
Bad photos are cheap and lazy, but par for the course.
But what would you have to see on an MLS listing that could only be explained by, oh, I dunooo….say…..somebody being on drugs?
How about photo of the house, UPSIDE-DOWN?
Well, I guess if you had been out all night dropping ecstasy and watching another raver twirl glow-sticks in your face, you might think that ALL houses are upside down!
Otherwise, there’s simply no excuse for this.
And look at the DOM – days on market. This house wasn’t listed with an upside-down photo and then immediately corrected – it’s been on the market for seven days!
Imagine hiring an agent to sell your home for $600K, and seeing that not only did they put the photo of the house upside-down, but they hadn’t checked or even SEEN the listing in a week?!?!
Wow, I think we’ve reached a new low!
But don’t fret – we’ll probably top that in a week…
