Real estate agent left red-faced after hilarious typo in house ad

A real estate agent has made an unfortunate typo in an advertisement for a property.

While it may appear to be a normal, inconspicuous listing of a two-bedroom Melbourne home, look closer and you’ll spot the error in the description that may have buyers think twice before laying down a deal.

Scroll through the gallery above to see if you can spot the hilarious error.

The Ray White advertisement used the word “thieving” to describe the suburb of Reservoir.

“Situated in the thieving suburb of Reservoir this modern double storey townhouse boasting relaxed, easy living is on offer to you,” the ad read.

While the error has since been corrected, people have become sceptical about whether they should look into buying property in Reservoir.

In 2018, there were close to 5329 thefts in the Darebin area, with burglary being the second most common, as there were 1397 recorded incidents reported last year.

The crime rate in Darebin is double in comparison to surrounding suburbs.

The home is set to be auctioned off on March 2, and is said to be in a prime location, close to schools and public transportation.
