Decoded: the Most 'Commanding' Listings in the Country

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.

Sometimes words get misused in real estate listings because they have multiple meanings, or precisely what they mean in the first place is confusing, or because brokers get a little too excited about the positive attributes of a particular house or property. And sometimes there is just no excuse. This is one of those times.

There might be a reason that these "top floor" views aren't pictured.

Normally, a "commanding view" is from a dominating vantage point, usually overlooking something. You can debate what that means, exactly, but "through a chain link fence" probably doesn't cut it.

This is a pretty dinky fireplace.
