In my area, it's 'mini ranch' or 'mini ranchette' which could mean anything from a singlewide on acreage not zoned for horses to a home with a few pecan trees. Another nails-on-the-chalkboard for me is 'well appointed'. WTF! Not everything you list is well appointed, ya hair flipper! Hahahah!

Interesting. those 2 styles seem to be rather descriptive here.  In particular, we have a lot of Tudors.  We have such a span of time when homes were built in our area, so these seem very accurate.  We have a lot of Victorian homes, too, but the Tudors are in the more expensive areas.

I'm not sure what type is over used/inappropriately used.

In our area, it's MCM. The ones that agents note as MCMs are not even period-specific! They were often built in 1990 - 2017 and are merely 'modern' homes, not MCM by any stretch of the imagination!

We usually do not use a home style, since our homes are most of the times are mixed. In general, most common styles: Spanish, modern, traditional.... 

Traditional is used most of the times, and I do not even know what that means:)

Detached.

Yep, we have a lot of Twin-homes here and agents try to sell them like detached homes to get them more exposure. But, when you pull up and it's got another home attached to it, that's a BIG problem...the kind that finds me in your office chatting with your broker. Happens more than I care to discuss.

IN nearly all cases I can see the elements the agent pulled the description from. The presence of a column may not be the sole criteria for a type.

Since we don't see much mid-century modern or tudor in my market, I would say it's the use of colonial and craftsman.
