Real Estate Fact of the Day

Did you know that real estate agents can't use "s" words? That's right, "safe" and "secure" are words non gratta in the housing market. I will say that it would've been useful if my agent in Florida could have said that instead of suggesting that we drive by the house I thought I wanted to rent (#2 on our list) the night before we'd tour it.

It was 10 minutes out of town, past two strip joints who featured unintentionally hilarious ironic signs about "no cover" for the summer of 2010 for customer appreciation. Did I mention it had an unofficial used car lot in the next yard? We didn't even slow down. Sad! The house was yellow, cute, and totally redone. And I imagine it will sit unrented for some time to come...
