Real Estate Speak

When reading ads for houses, a certain translation is needed.
Here's a partial sampling:
Charming: small
Cozy: very small
X number of years young: X number of years old
Fix-me upper: dilapidated
Pastoral view: no mountain view
The following words have absolutely no meaning whatsoever: gorgeous, beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime, fantastic, dream, extraordinary, magnificent, sensational,
large, spacious, enjoy, etc. etc.
