50 Shades of Raspberry Shag Carpet?

I had to laugh out loud when I read the description – especially the last 2 sentences – of this new short sale listing I found while searching the MLS for properties for one of my buyers.

Public Remarks Description:

“Short Sale. 5 bedroom 4 bath home with a 3 car attached garage and a 2 1/2 car (24 x24) detached garage wired with cable & electric. Can be used as workshop, band room, rec room, etc. Bonus room on second floor is office. In ground pool/spa faces a conservation and is private so you can skinny dip. Solar panels heat the pool. Enclosed lanai with outdoor ceiling fan. Gas fireplace with electric remote start in family room. Stainless steel appliances. Convection electric oven with LP gas top burners. Black granite counter tops in kitchen. Modern raspberry shag carpet in family room and master bedroom. 50 shades of grey dancer pole and mirror on the ceiling with disco ball in master bedroom.


I’m all for creative and viral marketing but I’m not sure most of my clients would like it if I described their master bedroom in terms of having “raspberry shag carpet” and a “50 shades of grey dancer pole and mirror on the ceiling with disco ball….” even if it really did! And if it really has those items, I might recommend that my Sellers remove these items before putting the house on the market. What the heck is Winnie the Pooh doing in the 50 Shades of Grey bedroom anyway?  Creepy…
