Your sales pitch seems a bit specious

Dear Real Estate Agent:

If you're hosting an open house at a potential new Treehouse that has Really Strange-Looking Curtains, you don't exactly increase my enthusiasm by pointing out that all the draperies are included in the already high price. Even if they are custom made.

Also, having "Specious Family Home" in big letters on the fact sheet isn't real reassuring either.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Sincerely,

Nitpicky Homelooker.

(Specious: 1. Having the ring of truth or plausibility but actually fallacious: a specious argument. 2. Deceptively attractive. http://www.thefreedictionary.com)

I( guess you didn't buy that one? You'd think they'd want the speciousness in *small* letters . .
