In the Brevard MLS system I think our narrative limit is 300 or so characters. That is not a lot of space so the words must make prospects want to see your house in Viera or Suntree!
The below is presented a bit tongue in cheek.
In my opinion some of these words include…
- “Close to shopping(where it is a "pleasure"),” – Now is that a Winn Dixie grocery or a Publix grocery? Never met a buyer who had to be near a specific grocery store!
- “Master Bedroom Suite "to die for,"” – Eternal rest, perhaps?
- “Seller willing to negotiate” – Duhhh? It is a buyer’s market!
- “Tangerine & grapefruit tree” – That will make them want to come and see your trees. After all, it is not like they plant their own!
- “Please make sure you lock” – Does this really need to be said in the narrative!
- “Will need just a bit of TLC to really shine again, all the bones are intact handy person’s dream come.” – Why not say it is a fixer upper?
By the way my favorite three useless words include...
- Classic Charmer - Sounds like a description of someone's Uncle Ed!
- Mrs. Clean lives here. - Then why is it dirty?
- Cozy - Can you say small, cramped, shoebox?
