Decoded: The Most 'Luxurious' of Apartment Listings

New, 7 comments

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: Luxurious.

Don't you hate it when you buy an apartment and it has some of the luxurious extras that you were expecting—24 hour doorman, laundry, bike storage, elevators—but not all the luxurious extras, such as a freshly printed picture of a baby and the world's least explicable glass partition? No need to worry about that with this apartment. The place proves that it really is possible to have it all.

Look at that luxurious living, abounding all over the place in this bedroom that has been virtually staged, terribly, to look like a hotel double.

This is a great philosophical question. It probably depends on whether or not people are eating dinner in it.

If anyone would like to try and figure out what makes certain earth tones more luxurious than other ones, be our guest.
