Realtor 101

This fella failed Realtor 101 for sure!

As most of you know by now, I really hate when a person puts ZERO effort into a listing. I mean, for pete's sake you are trying to sell a house and make a living. If he sells this house he will probably make around $7k after splitting with the broker. You'de think he would put just a few minutes of effort into the listing.

So here it is, 1796 Irving St, in Riverside. This is an average sized house on a huge orange grove or something. The trees look small so I doubt it is an income producing grove. It says the previous buyer paid $1.1M for it in 2006. That price seems nutz but then again what wasn't in 2006. Now it's listed for $495k and this is the best (and only) picture Realtor George Wong can come up with.....

Heck that could be my back yard, or a park or just about any thing. No house, really George ya couldn't snap just one picture of the house? And to top it off here is the complete description from the listing,
"8.1 acres - 352,836 square feet of fruit trees, water wells, 2348 sqft house with two car garage. Owner paid $1,100,000 on 5/2/06. Great opportunity. BUYER TO VARIFY ALL INFORMATION"

Oh, tell me more, your riviting description has me aching for more details!

I don't know if this qualifies for a Realtard of the month award but it's got to be a contender.

Being a realtor myself, when I read things like this I get embarrassed for the line of work I'm in. I guess any monkey can list a property.

He can't spell either.

George must have seen this post. He has replaced the picture of trees with 3 of the outside of the house. He didn't fix his description though..... One step at a time I guess.
