I got quite a chuckle from Brad Golstein's glossary of real estate terminology (Speaking Out, May 19), but I think he left out a few.
Here are several catch phrases I remember from our house-hunting days:
Spanish charmer--Looks like your neighborhood Taco Bell, only smaller.
English charmer--You won't find Queen Elizabeth bedding down here.
Rustic charmer--Overgrown landscaping and weeds for a front lawn.
Ultimate fixer--A tear-down.
Move-in condition--Sure--right after you make all the repairs and paint inside and out.
Cute as a bug--Better fumigate before you move in.
Cute as a Hills--Any street one foot or more above sea level.
I'll bet there are many home seekers out there who could add to the list.
