Article here on what a listing may show and what the reality is. A listing that claims 3 bedrooms, for instance, may be counting a basement cubby hole – perfect for Filipino maids, in the minds of some Greenwich homeowners, but not a real bedroom. Similarly, a house on the water may not be able to be expanded because of coastal regulations, the lot next door may be the planned-for site of the Osama School for Terrorist Boys, etc.
None of which is necessarily discoverable via Zillow, Google or your Manhattan friends who weekend in Greenwich. So I’m all for the Internet and its easy dissemination of information but I’m not losing sleep over being put out of business. Yet. By the time the Japanese perfect those cute robots they’ve been working on, I hope Walt and I have retired to the Rockies.
