Decoding Real Estate Ad Terms

Ah the spring! As soon as the first daffodil blooms, the open houses begin. Here’s a Old House helpful guide to deciphering those flowery real estate ads:

Rustic Charm– snakes under the porch
Build Sweat Equity – house is not inhabitable
Quiet Neighbors – home backs to a cemetery
Waterfront– In a flood zone
Desirable Neighborhood – Extravagantly overpriced
One-Of-A-Kind – Ugly as sin.
Convenient– Rear yard abuts the throughway.
