  1. What’s the point with the abbreviations? Does MLS charge by the character, or are the people writing these entries just hold overs from the newspaper days?

  2. No, this is just a retarded realtor that ought to be fired.

    [Editor’s note: That would be “rtrd rltr ot 2 b frd”…doncha no?]

  3. I think the realtor is targeting the teen OMG texting crowd. But I am not sure why. Perhaps the kid can convince the parents to buy this place.

  4. Come to SF. Half the 25-35 year old home buyers are getting help from bank of mom and dad :)

    SF is great for this.

  5. this has me laughing my ass off. I wish I had a dollar for every random missing vowel, miserably mis-spelled, obfuscated syntax riddled ad I’ve waded through. I could actually afford any house (or “hse”) that I wanted.

    Thanks for the blog inspiration too!
