Oh I've seen much worse, I just think it's ridiculous that an agent stands to make $10K+ on a home and won't shell out a couple hundred for a professional photographer.




This.....blows my mind that agents cheap out & do the pics with their iPhone or a cheap point & shoot.

Nothing says "I care" like a photo from a poor angle that includes the edge of the window frame and a good deal of reflection/glare.

NTREIS# 13178827

4,372 sf
3,404.085 ac
$459,000

deal of the century

Great job realtors, it's only been on the market two weeks. I'm sure you'll correct the acreage in time.

I had some new construction realtor list an entire neighborhood at negative acreage a couple of days ago.

-.25, -.15, etc.. Really caused problems trying to run comps and collect accurate market data. I have no idea what they were trying or thinking.

Their surveyor nailed it. Down to the 1/1,000th of an acre!

Some fun zoning.



The right is C1 the left R2.

Got three homes with both zoning going on. I have never seen that before.
Figured it was a GIS error, but according to the city it's not.

How can the city have part of a lot as one zone and another part as a different one?

No kidding. There are some very "interesting" design choices going on.

Ok, there's one. If your backsplash has to go up 7' maybe you need to evaluate how you're cooking things.

I love how there is **** EVERYWHERE in the house and then you get to the master and the only thing is a full sized bed and stained carpet haha

I think the realtor describes the downstairs as country French style or something ha

Just came across this listing in the Heights (in a good, but not great part of the Heights) for $720k for a tear down: What?

77379 is a goldmine for awesomely bad listings. Lots of 5000-7000 sq ft houses going for $60-$80 a sq ft. The best ones are in the $300k-$400k price range.

These are two of my favorites...

Among this house's many desired features are a "social bath" and a "preacher's wet bar". I counted at least 8 different types of flooring (huge pet peeve; I like continuity).

This one is awesome in part because it has a chandelier in the Porte coacher [sic].

Porte coacher


Jeeze, taking 30 seconds to Google that wouldn't be difficult. At least the listing isn't in all Caps.

Ugh. Working a sale, listed as a 3 bed, 3 bath. 1500 sf.

Agent included the 450 sf detached apartment in the overall GLA, bedroom and bathroom count. This isn't going to be pretty.

I'm working on something even worse. 1,300 SF house with 1,300 SF game room above the detached garage and the realtor listed it as 2,600 SF.

Ouch.


This is basic stuff. Like 1 car versus 2 car driveway easy. It's routinely effed up.

My company is pushing some new Collateral Analytics program that works off the MLS information but in a large chunk of the city - in the lower income older neighborhoods generally, that data is so unreliable and confused I fear the data is useless on a large scale. At least not without some significant risk.

What's the point of moving to a program that requires constant verification of the basic info?

I'm probably reading too much into it right now. I have yet to dig into it thoroughly.

Anyone catch the framed A&M diploma on the floor next to the big speakers?

The Stuart Smalley quote has letters grayed out to spell "you suck" only there's no C, so one of the Gs in doggone is grayed out instead.

The two fridge house is probably kosher Jews or hallah Muslims. Gotta get meat and other stuff separate.

we saw a house that actually had converted one bay of the garage into a 2nd kitchen (stove, oven, and fridge with prep space) and when we asked that's what thy told us.

Was still a really nice house and the other part of the kitchen would easily be converted in a mud room or something. The sellers said they'd take everything out and take 5-10k off the price, if we wanted.
