Unsurprisingly, as a result, people with no interest in either sales or property but a large interest in money have flocked to the profession, and the city is lousy with underskilled individuals trying to flog houses. It seems that anyone with expressive hair, a poorly developed sense of shame and a failure to graduate from high school can be a real estate agent.
A case in point is a young lady named Jodie, currently selling this property in the suburb of Wilson.
Call me pedantic, but I'm bothered by the errors in this blurb. With so many to cover, it's probably best to do them in order of appearance:
Australian Property Alliance is pleased to present this beautiful architecturally designed home in the highly sort after suburb of Wilson.
One, it's architect-designed, not architecturally designed. Two, Wilson is a highly sought after suburb, not a highly sort after one.
Featuring 4 Bedrooms, all with built in robes, 2 Bathrooms including ensuite from the master bedroom and another separate wash closet.
It's called a water closet, not a wash closet.
Modern open plan Kitchen, Family and meals area and separate Lounge/Theatre room.
Why is "meals" not capitalised like the other rooms?
Stunning outdoor alfresco, perfect for entertaining, low maintenance gardens and storage room.
It's "al fresco", not "alfresco". It's Italian. It literally means "in the fresh air". Therefore an alfresco (sic) is by definition going to be outdoors. Let me know if you ever find one in a basement.
Well positioned in private complex of 8. This property is close to all amenities and only a short walk to the Swan River.
Sweet merciful crap. It's only a short walk to the Canning River, not the Swan River. This would be unforgivable even if it WASN'T PRINTED ON THE MAP CONTAINED WITHIN THE LISTING!
What more could you ask for
I'm going to be bold and ask for a question mark.
Apparently the commission on this half-million dollar property isn't worth Jodie's time to run a spellcheck, correctly identify major watercourses or insert punctuation. And to be fair, she did get the name of the suburb right - what more can we expect for a measley $10,000 or so?
