Here’s a goody from last year’s news reel.

What’s a home’s selling point? A gracious living room with a stunning fireplace and original moldings that capture its natural elegance? A private deck that spills onto a lush backyard lined with maple trees? Country charm just steps from the heartbeat of the city?
Well, one house in real estate agent Jake Palmer’s portfolio has all of this — but he’s not banking on any of those features to land a buyer. Instead, he’s advertising the home’s less obvious virtues: no ghosts, indoor plumbing and, of course, fog resistance.
To spice up a listing that has gone stale for months, Palmer, a RE/MAX agent based in Saint John in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, decided to use humor to light a fire under prospective buyers. He’s been posting signs in front of the home that say “not haunted,” “indoor plumbing” and “fog resistant.”
There’s also: “It’s a brick, house” and “love shack, baby!”
