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: Oversized.
If there's one thing that all windows are, according to real estate listings, it's oversized. But if these windows are oversized, you might ask, reasonably, what does a regular sized window look like? That's a trick question, though, since most windows are so small you can't even see them.
It is just classic for a place to have floors and windows. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
In addition to these two huuuuge windows there are another two (same size) in the bedroom and another one and a half in the kitchen. And one in the bathroom. You know, multitudes.
The average size of a Manhattan 1BR is around 760 square feet, so technically, fine, this is oversized. But generously oversized? Just quit while you're ahead.
