Des Res

If you are looking for a new des res (estate agents' jargon for "desirable residence") then read what Allan Sherman says the brochure really means:

If an ad says "unusual," that means the house has a weird architectural design.
If it says "quaint," the house is extremely old.
If it says "charming," it's the size of a doll house.
And if it says "interesting," don't even bother!

You could have used several of those descriptions for my home before we bought it...luckily it didn't deter us and we've since made it our own.
It's still quaint...
