We’re known for our unpretentious, waffle-free property descriptions

Some agents wonder why people have a dim view of our industry, yet at the same time attempt to bamboozle you with cliched property descriptions.

Would you know what to expect if you went to view a “Delightfully well-appointed charming hidden gem secluded within this sought-after up and coming area convenient for transport links and ideal for investors and first time buyers alike”? No neither would we! If you’re not sure what we mean, take a look at these:

Cottage InHouse Boards

1. “May be in need of slight modernisation”

What it really means: It’ a wreck : needs everything doing

2. “Deceptively Spacious”

What it really means: This one’s even smaller than it looks on the pictures

3. “Compact and Bijou”

What it really means: Again tiny, but trying to be tiny and exotic

4. “Viewing highly recommended”

What it really means: Please view, we’re struggling

5. “Situated within this popular development”

What it really means: It’ on an estate

6. “Easy maintenance garden”

What it really means: Small with concrete slabs

7. “You can put your own stamp on it”

What it really means: It all needs updating

8. “It’s like a blank canvas”

What it really means: Again, all needs updating

9. “Cash buyers only”

What it really means: There’s not a bank that would lend on this one

10. “Rural location with distinctly private feel”

What it really means: There’s no shop or bus stop for miles, just sheep

11. “Pied-A-terre”

What it really means: Nice little lock-up

12. “3 bedrooms, 2 of which are doubles”

What it really means: One’s definitely a tiny box room

13. “Reduced for a quick sale”

What it really means: No one wanted it

14. “Highly sought after area”

What it really means: We’ve ridiculously overpriced it
