Maybe it’s just me, but so many within the real estate industry are promoting the newest technology that being AI and saying AI is the future.  Hmm I heard the same things about many products such as toys to even cleaning products in the past and I will not go into all the predictions (failed) about the climate. One of most frequent complaints I have received when showing homes listed by other real estate agents is the photographs. Here are some of the comments I have received: “Gee this looks nothing like the photos.” “Wow the rooms are much smaller than the photos indicated.” “Why didn’t they take a photo of this other bathroom (fill in the blank)?” “Hmm none of the closets have doors.” “The shed looks like its falling down and yet no photos but listed in the MLS.” “That’s a fence?” “...

...there's a place for them. I do enjoy doing the Merriam-Webster vocabulary quizzes. Sometimes I learn new words, learn the origin of common words, or learn the names of uncommon objects or animals. However, an informative or persuasive article is not the place to practice your vocabulary skills. It's not the place to use  words that readers won't instantly comprehend. I was reminded of this a few days ago when listening to a Georgia election official explain why he had voted not to verify the results of the 2020 election. He cited several reasons, one of which was that at the time of the election they were still "trying to functionalize" the voter machines. After he said "functionalize" two or three times, the person interviewing him finally said "What does that mean?""Oh," he answere...
