No I do not run out, exhaust, waste, tire, have no more, wear out, weaken, deplete, run dry, get cleaned out, lose, expire, or cease to find words, to describe, characterize, define, portray, summarize, detail, chronicle, record, declare, boast, specify, spin a yarn, recount or represent my listings.

 

Any other questions, inquiries, queries, investigations, inquests, polls, third degrees or interrogations you'd like to make? 

 

I'm adding new words all the time; I highlight words and phrases I like or don't know in books I read often; for later use.

It's easy to be in a habit of using the same words in our writing, and even in our conversations. Listing lingo is not different. On the other hand one can go overboard on using flowery language to embellish listing descriptions

Amanda is our primary listing agent, and for good reason.  When I used to do our listing descriptions I would use the word "spacious" a minimum of 10 times before she corrected and changed it up.  TOWERING and MAMMOTH would probably work!  LOL!

KISS. I find overuse of fluffy words to describe a home's features distracting. Convey simply and clearly, and don't go over the reader's head. Use power words in short sentences.
