Decoded: The Most 'Enormous' of Apartment Listings

New, 3 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: Enormous.

If you're a broker, and you're putting together a listing for an apartment, and you're thinking about using the word "enormous," there are a few questions you should ask yourself. Questions like: Is enormous a word? and Do I know how to spell it? and Am I a broker who is listing an apartment? If the answer to all three questions is yes, then you're probably good.

This apartment is, to be fair, more enormous than a bread box. Not by much, but still.

Don't worry—it'll seem a lot bigger once you've taken out all the furniture and walls and ceiling.

Might the windows even be ... oversized?
