Do you ever STOP to think of your prospects reaction when you email them a new listing? I try not to interject my own thoughts about particular street names to prejudice a buyers decision but often wonder - What were they thinking when the named this street?
One street I tend to point out while driving couples through town is "Lovers Lane".
Don't know why but it just strikes me as a silly place to live and raise a family.
I may say something like "How about living at 101 Lovers Lane"? The wife may snuggle up to her husband with a suggestive little whisper, a witty husband once said "I'm well beyond lover 101, got anything on the 200 block?"
Lovers Lane may be cute but others just seem odd. Would you like to see the house on North Roast Meat Hill Road? Sounds like a great place to be fat, dumb and happy. Certainly get your share of exercise every time you write the return address. Fortunately North Roast Meat is in a neighboring town where I generally do not travel. I have enough difficulty with some of the names in my area.
Can I interest you in Martleshamheath Lane? Yea, you heard right, north of the circle off Dorset Lane out Rockland way.
I like simple names, short and sweet, but there are exceptions. I ain't never gone down Gay Street and I especially wouldn't get there via Ben-Dover Way hitting the stiff right on Dipstick Drive.. ( not that there is anything wrong with that )
So... I'm curious to know, What are some of the strange, silly or stupid names in your part of the country?
