Last year, when we wished everyone the best wishes of the Season, we suggested you buy a house for some of your loved ones. Looks like somebody took us seriously.
Look at the last bullet on the flyer:
Some home buyers purchase homes as gifts. Hmmm, maybe by “some” they mean “I read this on a Real Estate website. Therefore, somebody somewhere out there must have actually purchased a home as a gift. Given that my income is about five percent of what it was in 2005, I will suggest almost anything to increase it in hopes that there is at least one suggestible person out there sitting on carloads of cash.”
Well, sure, this is a Bay Area real estate website, and we did indeed suggest buying a homes as a gift. Whether these agents understood we were using the literary technique of humorous exaggeration to make a point is one of life’s eternal mysteries.
This is an Open Thread. How many houses are you planning to purchase as gifts? Are they all in the Real Bay Area?
