Do Real Estate Agents dream of PR Sheep?
I can say that at this current stage I have some interest in the property market and I'm amazed that the pages of the material don't burn up in shame with the messages spread over them. As someone who has gone through media releases with a fine tooth comb for corporate clients, the paragraphs that you read about some properties are simply laughable.
To call a spade a spade, the releases are pure entertainment gold. If advertising was the movie industry, real estate would fall into the cult status of 'so ridiculous you wouldn't believe it'.
And maybe that could be the real truth. Maybe the writers for the Realtor industry evidently just walked off the last Jean Claude Van Dam movie to put pen to paper for the Real Estate Industry.
While Sylvester could mumbling over the storyline to Rambo vs Rocky(with 2 incomprehensible leads) his scriptwriters are noting down that a hovel with no space, no light in the corner of Broadmeadows is a 'beautifully enclosed nest on the fringe of the city with additional security benefits.' Steven Seagal could be mentioning 'he's just the cook' again while Dandenong is compared to Paris(Bad Traffic) and Venice(It's flooded) and that's just on the probable stages.
Heaven knows what they were writing when Pearl Harbour came along.
So thanks to the Real Estate industry I can be thankful that I live on high(second story) in a beatifully airy(holes in the wall) abode(single bedroom) for a close couple(with no space) with no renovations needed(or possible). I think I might just rent Commando again, the blurb says amazing things about that one.
