Decoded: The Most 'Magnificent' of Apartment Listings

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where we take a word or a turn of phrase that seems to show up in an unreasonable number of listings and decipher its true meaning. If you have any ideas for us, send them to the tipline. Today's word: Magnificent.

The 'magnificent bath' is a strange creature. This is not the only magnificent bath decked out with a ridiculous shower curtain. To be fair, though, what other kind of shower curtain could match that meticulously crafted sink for sheer magnificence? (No other kind, obviously.)

Listings like this one are just just ruining nice words like 'magnificent' for everyone.

Is there a size requirement for something to be magnificent? Should there be?

Don't look at it for too long, though, or you might go blind.
