Real estate dictionary

We're looking at houses and we've encountered plenty of real estate jargon. Here's some handy descriptions to benefit others.

  • cute and cosy: tiny
  • easy maintenance courtyard: concrete courtyard
  • stroll to shops, transport and ameneties: on a major road
  • great for first-home buyers: a lifetime of repairs or knock it down and build your second home on the land (courtesy of Kaz)
  • studio: answer the door, put the kettle on, change channels on the telly and surf the net all without having to get up off the toilet (ripped off from Guardian some years ago)
