Decoded: the Nation's Most 'Brilliant' Listings

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.

A quick search of listings website Trulia turned up 86 matches for the word "brilliant," and approximately 90 percent of them were describing floors. The phrase "brilliant floor," as far as anyone can really tell, seems to translate to, "a floor we cleaned for the listing photos."

Fun fact about glass: it also becomes shiny when polished.

That sun is really drenching the heck out of that room.

Careful how you approach this deck's views—they're very territorial.
