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: Seductive.
This one—we’ll be honest—we haven't really come across it in any listings. This is just one that we put into the search box and hoped—prayed—that three or four brokers out there were foolish enough to tempt the fate of the Brokerbabble Glossary. And they were, of course. Above, we have what's more or less a best case scenario for using 'seductive' in a real estate listing. Seductive views, sure. You've got some trees, a skyline, a church. That basically makes sense.
But which era is it??? The colonial era? The Tammany Hall era? Which of those eras was all about open floor plans?
'Seductive' is definitely a good word to use to describe shrubbery. Nothing weird about that at all.
This apartment is already in contract, but what do you want from us? Our options were severely limited with this one. That said, we're pretty sure whoever wrote this paragraph actually wants to have sex with the Twenty9th Park Madison.
