Realtors - remember there's always spell check!!!

Thu Mar 13, 2014 10:48 pm

Any notice how many sloppy listing advertisements there are on MLS. Tons of spelling errors etc...
I'm surprised that seller's aren't forcing those realtors to edit and make changes, there's a few listings that have been sitting with mistakes for a very long time.

I'll take a realtor who can't spell over one who can't sell any day.

...yes, me too. But consider this, many of the realtors who Red Lantern is picking on have only recently learned the English language. So yes, it would be nice if your agent is a great salesperson and can spell too, but I think a certain amount of tolerance should be in order. :D

Why I'm even bothering with this I don't know but.....

You idiots realize that the Board does most of the input, right? Many realtors send in the listings and the Board is the one that puts it up. Typos happen all the time. Suck it up.

I have seen a lot of listings where a Realtor needs to do basic math as well. Listings for acreage where the dimensions of the property are NO where close to number of acres listed . Yet when they calculate their commission bet it is not by a penny.

Yet when they calculate their commission (I) bet it is not (out) by (more than) a penny.
.... sorry, you are not making any sense. I inserted some words in () as a possible suggestion to make your incomplete sentence make more sense. :)

I would think BC property investors would be somewhat sceptical if the maths were actually correct. If you need one of them "calculators" to 'splain it...
There is no shame in overpaying
