From REAL writer Andy Borowitz of The New Yorker comes Rarely Available which mocks the often laughable property descriptions that I and my colleagues sometimes get a bit carried away with. Here’s just one example from Borowitz (check out the entire piece for more):
EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE, every move you make, we’ll be watching you in Manhattan’s first 100% glass building, the Residences at the Voyeur. Enjoy astounding views of Manhattan while Manhattan enjoys astounding views of you. No doors, no drapes, no problem! Just 1800+ sq. ft. of exhibitionistic living space, custom-crafted for your see-thru life style, perfect for sophisticated entertaining or just making sex tapes. Sun-drenched living room, sun-scorched master suite, and sun-ravaged kitchen will have you checking yourself for moles. We see you living here, and so will everyone else. $3.4M.
