An Amazing And Most Special Home To Be Appreciated Of Which You Will Fall In Love With.

So reads my favorite sentence of the hot pink home-sale flyer I found while out on a walk last night.  The flyer’s miniscule cursive font made it something of which to fall in love with, but more than that I appreciated the flowery and totally impractical descriptions that prevailed throughout.  So much so that I’m taking a whirl at adopting the realtor’s style.  Whereas in shopping for a house you might want to know boring things like how many square feet, how many bedrooms or how much does it cost, this realtor took pains to include none of that information.  Instead, the flyer promises:

  • “Beautiful English Cotswolds style ivy covered cottage”  
  • “endless renovations. Lovingly provided by the present owners.”
  • “Just enough greenery for the sophisticated city person”
  • “a bygone era Victorian street lantern.”
  • “Leading down the hallway is a spacious linen closet with drawers”
  • “nearby is a nice bath with shower”

If you are a homebuyer of which price and square footage are no object so long as you have a Victorian street lantern and a linen closet, all with a bathroom nearby and a vibe of love from the previous owners, let me know.  Because I will totally hook you up.

    got to love the “endless renovations”, aka money pit lingo.
