Realtors like to collect the stupid things other Realtors write about homes in MLS listings.

Here are my favorites taken from Los Angeles Realtor Gwen Banta’s list. (The parenthetical comments are Gwen’s.)

  • “The lime in the crawl space is to absorb moisture.” (So what’s with the hatchet and the duct tape?)
  • “The odor was from something that got trapped in the crawl space.” (Has anyone found the agent?)
  • “That’s a pine cone in the pool.” (And I suppose that’s lemonade in the toilet.)
  • “The cracks in the foundation are small.” (So is our offer.)
