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


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

From “All work has been completed for you” subtly referring to a house flipped with low-quality components to the effects of “As is” listings , the article explored the subtext of these common phrases utilised by real estate agents to artfully describe their listings. Boyd, a veteran of the pursuit of honest disclosure in home selling, was pleased to lend his expertise to this article, and Glink utilised many of his anecdotes to illustrate the often-misleading terminology. “We think Ilyce Glink is great”, Boyd said. “She has been a wonderful consumer writer for years and I even have one of her real estate books in our meeting room bookshelf. When her team asked me for some input for this article 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.”
