If you’re like most people, you’ve spent a good deal of time scouring real estate listings in Lake City – and you’ve probably read plenty of listing descriptions along the way. While you’ve read, you may have noticed a few words that got you thinking: Do these really mean something else? Check out these three words to watch for (and what they really mean) as you read real estate listings in Lake City.
3 Words and Phrases to Watch for in Real Estate Listings
As you read through listing descriptions, be on the lookout for these words:
Here’s a closer look at these words and what they really mean when they appear in real estate listings.
Word #1 to Watch for in Real Estate Listings: Cozy
When used in a real estate listing (such as “This cozy home is a great place to unwind after a long day”), the word cozy doesn’t mean it’s comfortable or warm. It generally means the place is small – and though that’s completely fine, because many people are looking for small houses, you may want to keep looking if you need something spacious.
Word #2 to Watch for in Real Estate Listings: Vintage
When a real estate listing touts something as having vintage style, it likely means that whatever the term is describing is old. It may mean bright teal subway tile in the bathroom, laminate countertops, shag carpet, or any number of other things dating back to the 1950s, 60s or 70s.
Word #3 to Watch for in Real Estate Listings: Bespoke
Using bespoke – the new buzzword for “custom” – in a real estate listing may indicate that the current owner had quirky taste that may not match yours. Look at the listing photos closely to determine whether the house is worth seeing in person.
