Okay, redundant, I know, but I was visiting a friend in northwestern Connecticut this past weekend who has his house up for sale. It’s a lovely, 1825 structure that, with maybe $500,000 – $1 million in renovations could be the beautiful home it once was but as of now, it’s a wreck. So how does my friend’s real estate agent describe it in its listing? “Lovingly restored to showcase condition”.
What possible good does it do to misrepresent a house on line or to prospective buyers? The briefest glance at the outside will reveal the lie and anyone brave enough to enter will be disappointed and, I’d expect, angry at the deception. So why do it?
My friend is quite ill and I didn’t want to press him on this but really, he should immediately fire his agent and find one with an iq certified to be above 90. If he can find one.
