I'm sure there are more, but there's some good one's in this list. A lot of websites will have similar information, but some have better maps or are more up to date. :P 8)




Estate agent house description funnies


Spacious: This usually means the room is slightly larger than a box.

Compact: Tiny/Small/Minute.

Character: Weird or needs re-wiring.

Convenient: There is a cop-op that you won’t use because chavs hang around outside. Or the runway to an airport is close but it doesn’t help you get to work.

In need of modernisation: A shack with at least four walls.

Viewing essential: Essential if you want to bore yourself to death on a Sunday.

Modern: Cheap, tacky, full of artexing and the coving is polystyrene.

Landscaped garden: Owner has experimented, or there is more than one bush or tree.

Integral garage: Great for storage but hopeless if you drive an average sized car.

Decorated to high standard: Wear sunglasses or leave your taste at home, gypsy caravan or passion killer doilies galore.

Sought after development: The police can’t stay away.

Carpets, curtains and light fittings included: Yeah like that is doing you a favour when taste got murdered and you are duped into paying for abysmal tat.

Family home: Can swing a cat but hold off on rescuing that Labrador, one of the kids will be sleeping in the dressing room as it is.

Kitchen diner: 2 stools fit nicely in the door way.

Detailed skirting boards: Now the brains of Britain agent is really running out of stupid things to say! Nah…it isn’t really possible is it?

Parking: Somewhere on the street near your house.

Executive: Posher than next door coz velour track suit worn by wag wannabe. Or cream and gold décor is in place.

Newly fitted kitchen: B&Q type of store had a sale.

Double bedroom: Can fit double bed if you can be a crab.

South facing rear garden: Well to the right somewhere behind the block of flats.

Well presented: Staged by owner, loosely translated…I need out of here!!!!!

Immaculate: Someone does housework.

Period features: House is older than 25 years.

Quirky design: Moron built it.

Priced to sell: Well dah! It says for sale!

No chain: Desperate seller.

Motivated seller: Answers the door when you arrive.

Strictly by appointment: Usually a bomb site and owner has to clean so it lives up to the exaggerated brochure description.

Close to schools: Screaming brats everywhere and not a minutes peace.

Open view: There is a football pitch where the local drunks and chavs hang out. The giant stadium lights will be a blessing for those big babies that need to sleep with a light on, may even help with the chronic bed wetting.

Good use of lighting: Gets hardly any sunlight and you WILL need to use lights in the day.

Shared drive: A dispute waiting to happen.

Interesting use of space: Is it interesting? or is it a “poor layout?”

All measurements are approx: Measured by magic tape.

Sought after semi rural location: council estate with massive expanse of new housing taking over the countryside.

Bedrooms with fitted furniture: That went out of style yonks ago and you are paying for it whether you like it or not.

Modern development: Tiny over priced plots.

Neutral décor: Owner bagged a bargain load of magnolia paint.

Enclosed garden: Dangerous neighbourhood.

Kerb appeal: Misleading frontage will lead to a disappointing house.

Friendly neighbourhood: Gossiping fishwife’s live here with their perverted husbands.

Wood effect flooring: Loosely translates to cheap sh1tting laminate that you will have to remove.

Tile effect flooring: Oh come on FFS stop with the effects and just give the buyer something real!!!!

4th bedroom currently utilised as an office: It is too small to be a bedroom, babies grow quickly you know! Short beds are not in Vogue and midgets won’t be beating your door down.

Recently renovated: Some damp proof paint applied to walls and acres of sea grass or chav laid cheap beige carpet.

Offers invited: Estate agent is clueless to the real value, please tell him/her.

OIRO: offers in region of already over priced hovel.

Juliet balcony: Can’t open the doors or sit on it, it’s not really a balcony and if your name ain’t Juliet then you will have to name the bars accordingly.

Good transportation links: Noisy.

Gated community: Low security prison with houses.

Beautifully presented: Yeah we expect you to fall for vendor’s furnishings and buy the ordinary house.

Stunning views: If you have x-ray vision that sees through the houses that obscure it.

Estate agent accompanied viewings: Owner given up bothering due to time wasters.

House for sale or rent: Good opportunity to opt out of the worst big buy of your life!

Drastically reduced: If it was it would sell! Agent in this case a major nitwitted bit of bum fluff.

Generous room size: Not as stingy then as the rest of the house!

Deceptive: What the vendors or the agent? yes, you have stretched the truth yet again!

A renovators dream: Bomb site.

Great house for those with vision: Oh yes and tons of cash.

Open plan: An estate agent would say that it has fewer walls to paint; well they do see the good side to glass bedroom doors and adjoining bedrooms.

Large shed for storage: Could also be an accurate description for some properties.

Attention all buyers: No one is looking at this property that is going mouldy whilst trying to get sold.

Stamp duty paid by vendor: In other words they are not willing to negotiate on price.

An established property: What you mean it isn’t new? Has it come out of the closet? Doesn’t it feel fat any more? You just couldn’t stretch to well presented…so it’s dated!!!!

With outhouse: Ex local authority and un-modernised.

Was £***,*** now £***,***: Can’t sell, possibly still over priced.

In the heart of: Wherever it is located.

Select development: Modern housing estate with fast turn over.

Now how many estate agents does it take to change a light bulb

None…the house has a cosy feel that will bring out the romantic in the buyer.
