Real Estate Typo’s

“Perfect for owner-occupant nor investors” (sic)

–Excerpt from MLS-listed duplex

It’s common for a duplex or other multi-family property listing to tout its appeal to either owner-occupants or investors.

It’s much less common to see one that says it’s appropriate for . . . neither.

P.S.: And this from today’s Star Tribune, which didn’t use to have typos or grammatical errors (let alone two in one sentence) — and did have proof checkers: ‘Fisher said the real estate of the market will be revealed as the effects of the tax credit wears off.’

That would be, “the real state of the market,” and, “effects wear off . . .”
