“Real” Estate Dictionary
If you’ve ever searched for and/or purchased a home, you probably ran into some interesting properties. The tiny condo or disastrous home may have surprised you, “How could the listing agent not have disclosed this?” you may have thought. Well, they did, but not in layman’s terms. Here are some common real estate terms, and the true meanings behind them.
Authentic = old
Awaiting your touch = needs a lot of work
Charming = hasn’t been painted in years, small and needs updating
Classic style = outdated
Comfortable = very small
Cozy = a very, very small box
Fixer-Upper = a day away from falling down
Furnished = owner doesn’t want to move his/her own junk out
Great investment property = you probably don’t want to actually live here
Has potential = needs some serious work
Historic = old, needs updating
Low maintenance (yard) = landscaping shrubbery may have died long ago
Minutes away from the airport = basically located on the landing strip
Motivated seller = been on the market forever or foreclosure is around the corner
Natural setting = the deer will eat your plants
Needs TLC/work = what realtors call “a handyman special,” major structural damage
Needs light cleaning = needs HEAVY cleaning, hire the nearest cleaning crew
Newer (enter feature here) = not that new, but newer than the house itself
Open/Flowing floor plan = no, or very few, inside walls
Partial view = you’re seeing the water through the window of another building
Peek-a-boo view = an even smaller view of the water through the window of that other building
Priced to move/sell = get this house off of our hands as soon as possible
Pond site = wet spot in yard
Quiet neighborhood = nobody wants to live there
Short sale = anything but short
Sold as-is = possible foreclosure, don’t ask for repairs or credits
Starter home = will never be finished
