A very humorous Blog that highlights gaffes from the MLS & ad bloopers.
 Oh, yes, it’s blooper day, and I found some eye-popping gaffes on the MLS this week! I think I finally figured out why we consistently see such errors – agents are letting their pets write their listing remarks. On the other hand, I suspect that my dog can spell better than some of these culprit...
Hi Folks, I decided to combine a new Blooper Blog post with one I posted in October several years ago, because some of these gaffes are all-time classics. Here’s some "autumn color" for you, so please enjoy:Amenities You Can Live Without“Nothing speared” (That’s a good selling point…if you’re a t...

Oh, Ricky!There is some old saying about the best laid plans going asunder, and I am about to tell you where asunder is: it's a place in New Jersey. Picture a lovely suburb of tract homes in Jersey, circa 1969. One year my mother Marie decided we should sell the family home and get something bigg...

  Something may have been rotten in the State of Denmark, but the MLS isn’t smelling much better.  Check out this review of some of my favorite stinkers and clinkers from the MLS and real estate ads if you’re in the mood for a few giggles:Something Seems Amiss…"New farmers stink" (Old farmers don...
Friends, I'm out of town this week, but I thought you would enjoy this Blooper Blog re-run:From blundering fools to complete tools, the bloopers on the MLS were hysterical this week, folks.
