5. Not Liking the Houses


A: I am not sure I even want to look at this house!

B: It is a bit of a fixer-upper. Let's take a look inside.

A: It doesn't look much better inside this place.

B: You know, with a little elbow grease and paint, you could spruce it up a bit.

A: There are hardly any windows in here, and that makes it really gloomy.

B: Let's go check out the kitchen. The printout says that it is quite large.

A: Look at those broken tile countertops and the peeling wallpaper.

B: Maybe the master suite has some redeeming qualities. Follow me, please.

A: What's that smell?

B: Perhaps we should move on to the next listing.


A: This house is not looking all that great from here

A: I am not impressed by the interior of this house.

B: Sometimes all a place needs is a little bit of cleaning and some fresh paint.

B: I think that we should check out the kitchen. It is listed as roomy and spacious.

A: Where are you supposed to store things without any cabinet space?

B: The picture in the listing shows a lovely master suite. I think that we should go look at it since we are here.

A: Is there a dead animal somewhere in here?
