A young home seeker in the city cautions you not to get your hopes up if you see the words "exposed brick" in a DC real estate description. In essence, realtors lie, and in a market like this where homes can go in under a day, we don't have time to waste looking at terrible walls. Her suggestion on what to do if you encounter a lack of exposed brick?
"make a protest sign, return to the Open House, and shout "we want the brick" until the seller comes out of his/her hiding place with a hammer and pounds away at the plaster, sobbing until it's all over."Sounds satisfying.
Have you been to an open house with bad exposed brick? Tip us off as to which listings are not getting it right.
