Decoded: the Nation's Most 'Sophisticated' Listings

New, 1 comment

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where Curbed takes a word or phrase that shows up repeatedly in listings and deciphers its true meaning. Ideas? Hit up the tipline.

Here are the items in this room, in order from most to least "sophisticated:" matching ceramic pots, an electric fireplace, a semi-abstract painting of people doing it (which may or may not be built into the fireplace), a zebra-print chair, and an indoor palm tree. On the sophistication scale, this room is a solid two out of 10. Hey, could be worse!

To be fair, this is about as sophisticated as it gets for a house that was built out of the spare parts left over from other houses.

"BRING YOUR MOST SOPHISTICATED BUYERS. I WILL JUMP OUT AND ROB THEM. ARE YOU WRITING THIS DOWN? STOP. WHAT ARE YOU DOING."

Either this broker misspelled the word "kitsch" or something is amiss here.
