Many of our clients look at property online, and occasionally they’ll ask us for more information on something that they find (that we haven’t already emailed them a link for).  

There is one in Coconut Grove  listed now that is  amusing:  Listed in the MLS  as a 2 bedroom 2 bath … it turns out that it might be something different…  In speaking with the listing agent, she asks me  how many people it’s for.  “Two”  –  (… the answer … she likes).   She then asks to clarify a bit:  because even though it’s advertised  in the MLS as a 2 bedroom it  is really what she prefers to call “a convertable two bedroom”… now that we’re talking on the phone.   

Okay… so what’s a convertable 2 bedroom?  Perhaps it’s den that could be used as a second bedroom?    

No … She’s  marketing the condo as a two bedroom and then clarifying to buyers and agents:  “What makes it a convertable two bedroom is that there’s a sofa bed in the living room.”   So … it’s really a one bedroom with a living room … and … a sofa bed.  

No reason not to fly with this …  You just have to laugh.

Our buyers response … “Wow … that changes how we might need to advertise the home we’re selling in Maine to relocate to Miami… We  have always considered ours to be a five bedroom.  Who would have known …  after all these years…  that we too have an extra bedroom!”

Looking to buy, sell, or relocate?  Call the Restivo Team at EWM Realtors 305-793-1365  or contact us here  …   or by email at restivo.v@ewm.com .  We look forward to working with you!
