Have You Seen Our Newest Billboards?! Here Is the Story Behind Them
Sellers could be puffing about the size of their F.R.O.Gs, if the chattel is included in the home, and who your emblements belong to! Umm…what?
If you’ve ever been to real estate school, you may have heard these terms, but while most of us don’t know what they mean, it is important to partner with an agent that does. Let’s start by breaking down some of the terms you’ve seen on our latest billboards.
Breaking Down the Terms
Puffing: The term “puffing” refers to “extravagant claims made by sellers in order to attract buyers.” It is the exaggeration of the good points of a product, a business, real estate property, and the prospects for future rise in value, profits, and growth.
Chattel: an item of movable personal property, such as furniture or domestic animals, that can be removed without damaging the property.
F.R.O.G: Frog stands for Finished Room Over Garage. This is normally used as a large office, a larger bedroom, or a game room.
Emblements: Emblements are annual crops (corn, cotton, etc.) cultivated by a tenant that is treated as the tenant's property rather than the landowner’s.
Why Does It Matter That Your Agent Know These Terms?
Having an agent that knows all of the lingo is very important! You want your agent to protect you in all instances since buying/selling a home is one of the most important transactions you will go through. They can’t protect you if they don’t know their terms. You want an agent that is professional, knowledgeable, and will fight for you!
