No, it’s not what I put in the showing feedback I sent the listing agent.

But, I just showed a (very) dated¬†Minnetonka townhome that suffered from what I’ll call “the 3 Deadly ‘L’s”:

Laminate countertops;

Linoleum floors;

And Lots of it . . .

And while it’s certainly possible to discount the price sufficiently to allow for those things . . . this one wasn’t.

P.S.:¬† Once upon a time, “laminate” was called “Formica.”

In truth, that really doesn’t do justice to the former, which is much more durable than its predecessor, comes in infinite varieties of colors and textures, etc.
