Here’s a funny listing someone on the Redfin forum linked to:
Luxury German auto? check
Up next, trophy wife!
Chicks dig guys who own a home right? (Please don’t notice this is a short sale!)
I didn’t notice it was a short sale because I was too busy wondering just how many drinks the surveyor had when platting out this neighborhood:
I wonder if he was working in an office where his colleagues enjoyed playing practical jokes, like the old “substitute tissue paper for drafting paper” trick. Unfortunately, Mr. Five Martini Surveyor was too looped to notice and nobody had the heart to tell him he had to do it over.
Also, did you notice this house is Pending with release? Do you know what Pending with release means? It means this:
This listing is in escrow and all contingencies have been fulfilled. “With Release” means that there’s a release clause with the offer stating that the buyer is trying to sell his current home before closing. A release clause lets the seller back out of the deal if the buyers can’t sell their home within a set time frame.
So my question to you is what the hell kind of house is someone hoping to sell in order to buy this one?
