Decoding the real estate ads
Composite view of typical country property
(right), together with a real estate advertise-
'ment (inset of the type that might appear in the classified section of a newspaper or as part of a catalog of realty listings, serves to illustrate the gap that sometimes exists between description and reality. The phrase "Approx. 12 acres" may mean just about anything at al! but likely indi- cates that no accurate survey has been made.
"Handyman's delight" is most often a euphe- mistic way of saying that the house and out- buildings are wrecks, as an on site inspection would reveal. "C. 18th cent, details" probably reflects an unsupported belief that the house may be as much as 200 years old. The refer-
'ence to state land carries the implication that the area is protected from overdevelopment, but the ad does not state that a road cuts across the propeny to permit loggers access to the state forest. Oddly, but not atypically, the ad fails to point out a number of positive aspects.
Though the phrase "Riv. vu" indicates the pres- ence of running water nearby, the fact is that both a stream and a pond exist on the property.
Nor does the ad reveal that there is an excel- lent woodlot and that the farmhouse is in close proximity to public highway, allowing for easy access. For all its deficiencies, the ad does awaken interest, but only by visiting can you judge the property accurately.
