Ummmm, yeah.....is that ok or isn't it proper English??alwayscurious said:One thing though...
Did you mean to say "lovingly rejuvenated"?
Aww crap now I look really pedantic. ... ah well.Sultan of Swing said:Ummmm, yeah.....is that ok or isn't it proper English??
I sorta think, Skater and Bargain Hunter put a lot into it and woulda loved it when the saw their project progressing.
Oops, I missed that! You're right, that's what I meant to write. Now I gotta fix it.alwayscurious said:Your original post had "loving rejuvenated" But here am I calling the kettle black. I do that sort of thing all the time.
SOS, I love that. I have taken it off the market for a little while, but I will definately get the Agent to write something along those lines. Thanks.Sultan of Swing said:Hi Skater
I’ve just had a look at it on the web site, most of the photos look great.
I was disappointed with the write up though. The agent has plenty to work with but when you’re competing against other properties I believe you have to write something to whet a buyer’s appetite and I think your agents been lazy with he/she has written so I took it upon myself to have a go.
If you’re looking for something with a few ‘extras’ then take a peek here. This home has been lovingly rejuvenated* and is just waiting for you to find it. Apart from having four bedrooms, a delightful new kitchen and a renewed bathroom, there’s also a separate lounge room and a dining area with French doors that open out onto a stylish timber deck, an ideal place to entertain family and friends. There’s also a private, well-fenced backyard with plenty of space for the kids to play in safely and as it backs onto treed parkland, it has a peaceful rural atmosphere. And at this price it shouldn’t last so call for an inspection today!
I can just hear some of you saying, ‘Just another agent overselling or overstating a property’ but hey, if you were the vendor wouldn’t you want your agent pulling out all stops and giving it everything they had to sell your home and to get you the best possible price in the shortest period of time?
I’d also ask them to take another picture of the laundry, the one on the net is crooked and lets it down. With digital cameras, how much trouble is it to take a few and get it right? It can be the little things that set it apart. If the agent can’t be bothered getting a picture right, again it's just laziness and I believe it takes away from the property just a tad.
I’m open to any comments or feedback about it. Perhaps you like the simple type of ad.
*I have to credit Peter Spann with my use of ‘rejuvenated’. I read it in one of his books and have used it many times since as no one else round here has ever used it. Thanks Peter.
Mike, we did sell it in late 08-early 09, I don't have the date on hand right now. We had a couple of set-backs after completing that home that were completely unforeseen, which meant that something had to go, & that house owed us the most.Great thread skater - any updates on the property? did you eventually sell it?
im about to embark on a similar expedition on a similar type of property, in the same area actually, although i think i will hire everyone to do the work for me.
Also any update on how your termite treatment went? mine if filled with the buggers.
Well, when you add the slump in as well............then we had two years of abnormally high sport costs, while preparing for worlds. Without all of that, I could have retired Hubby by now.haha - gotta agree with that ... the losses from a large project that came online just in time for the 2005 slump set us back several years.
