First Canadian enters the overvalued hall of fame

Say hello to Lynn Gourley, the first Canadian to enter the Pantheon of realtors - the overvalued hall of fame. Why is she there, you ask? Well, Lynn is the realtor responsible for listing this $50k wonder:

This would seem a case of "what you see is what you get", but Lynn, always the professional, digs deep into the realtor book of selling cliches. This is what she came up with.

"Your chance to own one of the 1000 Islands! Pitch a tent, swim, picnic, hunt, fish, beach your boat. Located near western entrance to International Rift & close to Ivy Lea area marinas. Great views of surrounding islands."

Hunt? Can anyone see any bears on the island? Pitch a tent? Where? Swim in a lake in Canada? Aren't those lakes a little cold, even in summer? Picnic? If an average person were to lie down on this island their feet and hair would be wet at the same time.

Thanks to Walker for this one. The listing can be found here. Lynn has her own website. She is the realtor to choose, when you need to sell rocks, bushes and massively overvalued tiny islands in the middle of nowhere.

Today is Canada day at the overvalued blog. Send anything Canadian here, and we might post it.
