Ann Arbor Buyer Agent Quoted on CBS News about Home Listing Language

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ann Arbor, MI, November 2, 2015
Released just in time for Halloween, 10 Signs of a Scary Real Estate Listing, a recent report by Ilyce Glink, borrowed wisdom and guidance from Home Buyer’s Agent of Ann Arbor broker Jon Boyd. Noting 10 prime misleading phrases often used in home adverts, the report was verily an expose on the real meaning behind trending word options in descriptions for houses for sale.

From “All work has been carried out for you” subtly referring to a residence flipped with reduced-quality components to the results of “As is” listings , the report explored the subtext of these frequent phrases used by real estate agents to misleadingly describe their listings. Boyd, a veteran of the pursuit of honest disclosure in home marketing, was happy to lend his experience to this report, and Glink used many of his anecdotes to illustrate misleading terminology. “We believe Ilyce Glink is great”, Boyd mentioned. “She has been a excellent consumer author for many years and I even have one of her real estate books in our meeting space bookshelf. When her team asked me for some input for this report I did every thing I could to help them out.”

Jon Boyd went on to say that “The language of listings is often confusing to home buyers, sometimes intentionally…Buyers need to understand that the purpose of the listing agent’s remarks is to get you in the home and buy the house, not to inform you and certainly not to disclose things that would direct you away from a house that you could possibly buy. It is not an exact science, but buyers should remember it is an advertisement for the home. It is not objective.”
