Creatively Hilarious Home Description

Recently came across this description for a fixer upper that is so hilariously creative! 😆 Enjoy this good read! 📚 Do you have a fixer-upper home you need to sell? I can help you do that too. In fact, I have one coming up in Kent, WA this week!

“Here it is, literally the worst house on the street! The Seller has done the hard work of cleaning up the almost half-acre property (it only took 7 dumpsters!), so now is your chance to take it from here. Have you ever watched HGTV and thought, I could do that! ? If so, pack up your tape measure and start Googling how to identify a load-bearing wall because it’s time to put your money where your mouth is! The roof leaks, the floor creaks, and there’s a terrible draft, but this 3 bed, 1.5 bath home is very open concept. And by that we mean the inside is open to the outside because several of the windows are broken. There is a large, sunny window in the kitchen… and absolutely nothing else – a wonderful feature for someone interested in a bright reading space (and ordering take out for every meal). Now I know you’ve heard of a detached garage, but have you ever heard of a detached foundation?! Because that’s what you’ll find here in the large bonus room at the right of the home. And if you’re looking for a house that screams I’ve got bizarre and ominous energy, then honey stop the car because you’ve found it right here conveniently located off of US-301 in North Zephyrhills. If you need a place to stage your next post-apocalyptic zombie movie, this is it (the covered porch has really good rest here on your way to the safe zone vibes). And whether you like to turn up the heat or keep it cool, it won’t matter here because there is no HVAC system. Oh and don’t forget about the brick chimney that perfectly epitomizes how we all feel after 2020 – about to collapse and going nowhere (literally, there is no fireplace inside the house). What else can be say about this one-of-a-kind opportunity? It’s not in a flood zone and will be conveyed with clear title! But we don’t have a survey and the Seller has never seen the property, so buyers are strongly encouraged to do their own due diligence. And if you’re not interested in crying yourself to sleep every night while you rehab this home, might we suggest tearing it down and building a brand new one in its place? The neighbors would likely thank you.”

What did you think of this write up??? 🙂

Common FSBO Fair Housing Violations

This is only a movie clip, but I see these types of FSBO descriptions ALL. THE. TIME. Sometimes it feels like the general public gets all of their vast rea estate knowledge from movies, TV shows, and HGTV. 🤣 Take, for example, this movie I was watching last night. Just this little clip alone had FOUR fair housing violations in their FSBO ad. That is, if it had been a real FSBO seller. (You’re not getting your real estate advice from the tele, right? 😆) 🛑 Do you think federal, state, and local fair housing laws ONLY apply to real estate agents and firms? Not at all. They apply to the OWNER too whether you have an agent or not so watch out!

Arnold Schwarzenegger was a millionaire BEFORE becoming famous

Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not a name you associate with real estate, right?? Well, guess what folks! He did NOT make his millions from being the #Terminator or #KindergartenCop. He made it in real estate BEFORE becoming famous!!!! 😳😳😳

In fact, he was ONLY 25 years old when he was already a millionaire from real estate investing. 😳 Real estate is one of the safest long-term strategies for building wealth. But a lot of people don’t realize you can make real cash today in short time if you can live simply in the early years. 💵 No, I’m not talking get rich quick in one year. But in several years, it’s possible. How? By living simply and buying a small house or duplex, then trading UP. From a duplex, move up to a 4-plex. From that, move up to a 16-unit building, for example. Remember: your initial purchase must come from your own pocket and income source, BUT it snowballs from there due to equity built from appreciation and CASHFLOW income from the monthly rents! 💰💰💰

You learned something new today! 😊

The Most Popular Color in the World

BLUE is consistently ranked as the most popular color in the world – by men and women alike! Which is why it makes a great color to use in your #home when getting ready to sell it. It’s so easy! You don’t need to paint the walls necessarily, but it’s easy to swap out that old orange blankie for a blue one, as you see here. Or a blue vase or bouquet of flowers! 😉💙 (By the way, the most unpopular colors are brown and orange. Eww! LOL).

Low Appraisal Addendum


The last several months has seen a steady climb in the use of the “low appraisal addendum.” What is it? This addendum obligates a buyer in advance to pay MORE than the appraised value. Why would anybody do that?? Because buying is so competitive right now that many homes are not appraising at value! You would think this would be a great thing for buyers (a protection) and it is, but then enter this addendum. This addendum allows buyers to submit a MORE COMPETITIVE offer by promising a seller in advance that if the property does not appraise, the buyer will pay more than the appraisal value. The buyer sets that amount in their initial offer. Remember that lenders won’t lend above the appraised value so that’s EXTRA cash you need to bring to the table. Of course, if it appraises at your purchase price value, the addendum doesn’t apply.

SOUNDS TOUGH TO BUY RIGHT NOW?? Not necessarily. This doesn’t happen with every home on the market. It largely depends on the location and type of property you want. PLUS, with interest rates so low, it’s worth giving it a shot if you can get into a home and start building your own equity instead of your landlord’s!
