Acidgalore likes looking at Back Bay condo ads:

……….Another lovely one, that you don’t want to miss on: A $2,150,000 condo, comes with a, – OMG, are you sitting down?- a Mini Cooper! Actually, it comes with a “MINI COOPER!!!” How exciting indeed! I can afford $2mil on a condo and you think the Mini Cooper will be the deal maker? Sure, it’d be nice to have a little kid brother for my Lexus and my husband’s Mercedes, wouldn’t be? But, hey, you’re not including a 42″ Plasma TV in the sale, so, sorry, I’ll have to walk…

And this last one was today’s favourite: The listing says the condo is 2,200 square feet, good size, ain’t it? And here’s what’s written under disclosures: “the deed refers to the condo as being 1,900 square feet, but according to the owner’s measurements is 2,200 square feet”. Are you being serious? You have priced a 1,900 sq ft condo as a 2,200 sq ft and that’s your justification? You haven’t even hired say a professional surveyor to do the measurements? Yeah, sure, I have faith & trust in the owner’s measurements!!! On the bright side if it’s taxed based on the 1,900 sq footage, it’s a deal, right?! Oh, dear, an expanding condo in our expanding universe, how apt!!!
