Decoded: the Nation's Listings With the Most 'Wow Factor'

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.

Making people say "wow" seems like a reasonable goal for a real estate listing to aspire to. Of course, there are all kinds of reasons that people say "wow," among them: "Wow, what an unreasonably large foyer this is. What on earth are we supposed to do with this foyer? Put a couch in it? A single couch, facing the wall? And that's it? Wow, okay." Anyway, this home definitely has "The Wow Factor."

"Wow, what tall ceilings. Why are they so tall? How are we supposed to reach those windows?"

"Wow, what is going on behind the bed?"

Well, that's one way of putting it.
