It’s a fast-paced real estate market, out there. So buyers need to be armed upfront with as much information about a home as possible to narrow their choices. In addition to quality professional photography, a property’s listing description is the most important feature that allows buyers to learn a home’s story before they see it in person. But in many cases, reading property descriptions can be as complicated as deciphering a map for buried treasure.
You probably know common real estate abbreviations, like BR (bedroom) and BA (bathroom). But the well of listing abbreviations runs deep! Some of the abbreviations below are still common, while others have dried up (or at least, we sure hope so).
