RIP Joan Rivers: "I told my mother-in-law that my house was her house, & she said, 'Get the hell off my property."
Joan Rivers listed her 5,200-square-foot penthouse on East 62nd Street NY a few years ago. She unabashedly adored humor, plastic surgery and real estate! Long Live Joan!!!
Let me give you the profile of what I mean by a typical Professional Tenant. (This is a generalization based on my professional experience.)
Lucifer is #Winning!! Court Rules Pennsylvania Home Sellers Don't Have to Disclose Murders, Satanic Rituals.
The judge basically said the murders were all over the freakin' internet and the buyer was a ding dong for not googling the house before buying! Philly.com reports:
“The varieties of traumatizing events that could occur on a property are endless,” wrote Justice J. Michael Eakin in the court’s July 21 opinion. “Efforts to define those that would warrant mandatory disclosure would be a Sisyphean task...What if the killings were elsewhere, but the sadistic serial killer lived there? What if satanic rituals were performed in the house?”
The ruling was in response to a suit filed by a Delaware County woman who had claimed the McMansion she bought in Thornton had an undisclosed “material defect,” because the seller had not told her that at a murder/suicide had been committed in the home.
Realtor Magazine: Beauty Discrimination is REAL! Attractive Realtors Suffer...But Does it Apply to Male Realtors Too?!
Did you read Realtor Magazine's* latest article "Does Beauty Matter"? I am SO offended. It's about how beauty is an asset or hindrance as a real estate agent (as exemplified by an ex-pageant beauty queen in the article). I am livid! Why!? Cuz they didn't talk about attractive menz. No fair!!
Seriously, being too sexy as a woman can hurt you professionally, but can being too sexy as a man do the same? I doubt it. If you walked into an open house and laid eyes on either of these 2 men below, would you think any less of them because they be smokin' hot (in a conventional kind of way)? Didn't think so. You'd be sayin' "I don't care what the price is, where do I sign the contract?" LOL!
