10 Of The Wildest Real Estate Listings That Someone Is Actually Trying To SellBy Vika https://pictolic.com/article/10-of-the-wildest-real-estate-listings-that-someone-is-actually-trying-to-sell.html
People often get into a career because of the way it looks in their imagination, and that picture isn't always accurate. So when they get in, the daily grind shows them that the job can be vastly different from the idealized image they initially held in their minds.
Enter the 'Real Estate Broker Disillusioned With Life.' It's a parody Facebook page that features questionable Lithuanian property listings. The ones that our fictional broker didn't see themselves working with when they were entering the industry.
But here they are, photographing bathtubs in the kitchen and house walls painted with Adidas stripes, asking themselves how are they going to sell this.
We managed to get in touch with the person running this Facebook page and they were kind enough to have a little chat about it. "I do managerial work in an absolutely different sphere," they told Pictolic.
"But once it so happened that I had a considerable amount of money in my bank account and I didn't have a home. II had the freedom to choose: I thought about a small apartment in the old town, a hut in the village, even some kind of nonsense, which, after renovation, could be turned into a decent place."
"That's how I browse through real estate listings. It became very interesting," they explained.
The person behind the page said that they were drawn not by real estate itself, but by its presentation—the photos and descriptions.
"I myself have taken photos of my relatives' properties, posted ads for them, and helped people buy a new one."
"The transactions happened quickly and both parties were satisfied. The real estate sector is one of my hobbies. Sometimes it even bothers me, because when I drive down the street I know what is being sold and for how much. Or how much it should cost."
The 'Real Estate Broker Disillusioned With Life' said that there were times when they would find a listing and burst out laughing.
"I started sending them to my friends and we would laugh together," they recalled. And that's when they got the idea for the page. "Initially, it was called 'The most amazing real estate ads.'"
"But then one angry lady called me a real estate broker disillusioned with life, which is exactly who I am. So thank you, lady!"
