We all know that honesty is the best policy when listing anything on Trade Me.
This week, an Auckland real estate agent used brutal honesty to help sell a run-down three-bedroom house in Henderson. The property went up onsite with the title 'It's dreadful' and the agent described it as needing 'generous proportions of elbow grease and the odd drop of blood, sweat and tears' to get it back to its former glory.
Of course, the listing caught the eye of many Kiwis and has had 7,100 views since it was listed. It made a few media headlines too.
This is definitely some creative marketing and we think it's great the agent is trying something a little different to capture Kiwis' attention.
We wish them all the best finding a buyer for this 'group home gone bad'.
