That is "wishful thinking "at the time the home gets listed. Then "forgetful thinking" .. oh wait, no thinking at all when it does not sell and the lack of creative writing/marketing sits in the MLS and grows mold as the home does not sell. 

"I'm gorgeous inside" - the outside looks like crap but come inside and see!

I guess "long" is a matter of definition.  Sounds like time for an edit in the comments section of that listing.

I agree that is a tough one, because we all feel our homes will 'sell quickly' and 'won't last long' - just painful to put it in words Peter Mohylsky!  I've seen 'gorgeous inside' and that can be very subjective . . .

Owner says Sell Now is always a good one...
far too often you will see that there have been no changes to the listing either the home itself or the list price..
If its been on a while and the owner wants to get it done NOW...some change is likely required lol

Hmm, I wonder how many listings had the words "Won't last long' that were gone before you saw them?

We may be over looking the 'one-in-six-thousand' that was successful.

Be aware, these words are not intended for the real estate agent but for the buyers trolling the Internet for a good roof. The citizen may not be as jaundiced as the typical agent.
