Doncha’ love when the listing says parking for “1 car–garage” is included, and then in the remarks they clarify that “There is a rental garage 2 blocks away for additional monthly fee”.
Then there is the blithe and brazen way in which so many Hoboken real estate agents inflate the bedroom count when they list properties. A bedroom must have a window and a closet and a door. And should be big enough for a bed. Granted, the pathetically inadequate and outdated forms we are required by our MLS to use to enter the listing data does not have a “den” category but the agent can simply disclose it in the remarks – there is a difference between a 2nd bedroom and a den.
How about re-listing the property as a new listing at a lower price to reset the “days on market” clock. That’s a new one that has become popular.
Or using photos of a property that were taken years ago – before the messy tenants moved in and trashed the place.
My personal favorite remains the agent who lists a 4th floor walk-up as being on “floor 3″. When questioned about it, his answer is always “there are 3 flights of stairs”.
Cut the crap, people…and have a Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
