Furious email from some homowner. Here’s what she says:
I was recently forwarded a copy of your description of my house at 69 Lake Avenue in Greenwich, CT.
You are factually incorrect on many points and I demand that you remove all reference of my property on your website. You are falsely communicating information to the public and misleading them. Additionally, you have personally hurt me with your false information and total misrepresentation.
Please let me know when you have removed the item. Also, you falsely posted a comment from my husband. [what the fuck does this mean? Ed] This action is considered unlawful in the State of Connecticut.
I look forward to hearing from you today.
Here’s what I said, way back in January. Is there any connection at all between what I wrote and what this woman read?
This 1795 house, just to the east of the Lake Avenue rotary, was originally listed at $2.650 million back in 2007. It’s now been rented, at $7,000 a month, through January, 2012, and you can buy it for $1.925. Your call.
That’s all I wrote – I’ll take down the offending post – I’d have thought a little free advertising might have helped this lady but obviously, 37 months on, she’s over-priced her house – not my problem, but I don’t want to add to her woes. But I’m leaving the post up for a couple of days so that readers can see the disconnect between delusional sellers and reality. Come Friday, down it goes. And then, no doubt, she’ll finally sell her house at $5 million. Nut job.
