Unexciting Exclamations!!!!!

Inventory as of 17th February, 2013: 2-1-5

In December, I wrote about the “Campaniles of Northpark Square“. It was about two identical campanile properties listed for around $420/SF. Two different Realtors represented the properties- one put decent pictures with a decent listing information, while the other took it easy with grainy pictures and a so-so property description. Since both properties were identical, even though I wrote a blog sharing my displeasure about the sub-standard listing information (given the amount of money involved in the transaction if it were to sell), I didn't think the listing information mattered so much. But guess it does.

14 Longvale closed on January 31st at $815,000.

24 Spyrock is still on the market, listed at $814,999 with additional pictures, and property description written primarily to cater to a teenage audience with multiple exclamation marks, and the legendary line “upgrades are too many to mention”. Pity, teenage children that “get” the description aren't the primary decision makers.
