What Words in a Listing Description Mean: Decoding The Real Estate Lingo

Have you ever read the description of a house for sale and you’re excited about it, but when you go and see it, it’s not at all what you imagined? Here are some tricks to reading between the lines on the home description, that may save you some head ache and time. Enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.

Here’s the decoder ring for real estate. When you see these words in a listing description and what they really mean.

Listing descriptions are often riddled with jargon that might not be self-explanatory to someone who is unfamiliar with the industry. To help potential buyers understand what all of this means, here’s an overview of some common terms so that they can find their dream home with ease!

Cozy – too small for most people, tight spaces

Cottage – little place you probably won’t want for year round living

Custom – non traditional and sometimes weird

Unique – this is one person’s taste is decorating and probably not for everyone

Modern, vintage, and rustic – this means dated and in dire need of updates

Great potential – be prepared to dump $100,000 into this house, or more, and probably needs to be stripped to the studs

Lovingly maintained – means they have not updated this since they moved in, but are clean and thoughtful. Probably needs to be updated but at least it’s clean

Hot or up-and-coming neighborhood – means half of the houses are old and worn and the lawns are unkept while half have new owners that are excited to be living there

Luxury kitchen – not likely, stainless appliances at best

There are certainly more, and I’ll add them as I see them. It’s exhausting reading these descriptions and knowing what I’m going to see to when I get there!

Home Prices | As simple as supply and demand

Are you worried about the housing market? It’s time to relax.

Home prices are determined by supply and demand. Today, it is simple to explain the strong year-over-year home price appreciation because of this concept. As more people want to buy houses than there are available homes on the market, buyers have no choice but pay a premium for those few that do exist. This causes house values in fantastic neighborhoods like Beverly Hills or Palos Verdes Estates soar while poorer regions see their property stocks stagnate or decline in value as they compete with each other for scarce resources.

Here are three maps that show the effects this theory has had on residential real estate:

Map #1 – State-by-state price appreciation reported by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020:

As the map shows, certain states (colored in red) have appreciated well above the national average of 12.6%.

Map #2 – The change in state-by-state inventory levels year-over-year reported by

Housing inventory is at all-time lows while demand remains high and this proves to be a recipe for higher housing prices. In fact, states with the most change in listing inventory also experience greater price appreciation than those without such drastic changes. The best examples are Idaho, Utah, and Arizona where both increased by more than 30%. This correlation between changing listings inventories and state’s property value increase can easily be seen when comparing different maps of each individual U.S state – especially as it pertains to these three cases.

The reason prices continue to accelerate is that housing inventory is still at all-time lows while demand remains high. However, this may be changing.

Is there relief around the corner?

The report by also shows the monthly change in inventory for each state.

Map #3 – State-by-state changes in inventory levels month-over-month reported by

As the map indicates, 39 of the 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) saw increases in inventory over the last month. This may be evidence that homeowners who have been afraid to let buyers in their homes during the pandemic are now putting their houses on the market.

We’ll know for certain as we move through the rest of the year.

The rapid price appreciation we’ve experienced over the last year has some people concerned. The maps above show that this is warranted if you look at how much demand there was for homes and what limited supply existed. Going forward, as long as more houses are put on sale to meet the higher level of demand it will be a bit easier for prices to moderate towards their historical levels rather than continuing up so quickly like they have been recently.
