Now Find Out What Realtors Really Mean

The Angry New York blog has taken my recent Developspeak-to-English translation one step further and composed a Realtor-to-English translation. It begins with:

Statement: "I have a cozy studio apartment you’d love"
Translation: "A landlord just made a storage closet into an apartment and is looking for suckers"

Take a look to read the rest.

I once almost rented a tiny, overpriced apartment. I was just tired of looking and it was a great location. But my agent wouldn't let me—practically took the checkbook right out of my hand. There are some good, decent agents out there, but we remember the bad ones. Perhaps from time to time we should mention the good ones?
