Oh dear - Purple(b)ricks needs a proof reader...

We all make mistakes, and when it comes to typos Estate Agent Today is as guilty as anyone. But there’s a spectacular blooper on one of Purplebricks’ entries on Rightmove.

We’ll let you discover what it is, but you won’t have to read far - just the first line of the property description*.

We’re also guessing that the listing’s reference to a September date for an Open House* is about last year, not this - so presumably it’s one of those taking rather a long time to sell…


Our thanks to Dan at Lichfield agency Downes & Daughters for sharing this listing which you can see here

* Since this story first appeared this morning, Purplebricks has corrected its spelling error (in which it called itself 'Purplepricks') and has removed the reference to last September's Open House on the property

    “We do exactly the same as traditional estate agents” except give a toss!

    cant see any mistakes except in the measurements, maybe altered already?


    Looks to have been changed now - but can assure you it included a very unfortunate 'p' 'b' switch around!

  • Paul Singleton

    It basically said “open day xxx September” bearing in mind we’re now in March the following year it just demonstrates that once they have your money - job done. Any decent agent would have made a diary entry the day after the open day to change the description but not these payanyway chancers. Obviously the LPE has been tipped of about their inadequacy this morning and changed it!

  • David Porter

    They can't spell 'accommodation' either...

  • Cath Shuttlewood

    It should also read 'Purplebricks IS delighted...' (a company is singular, in spite of the name here appearing plural).... I wonder if that one will get corrected...?!
