Real Estate Abbreviations 2009

With the Spring 2009 real estate market upon us, buyers & sellers once again find themselves navigating the complex acronyms used in real estate. I've compiled quite an extensive list of common & sometimes obscure real estate abbreviations. I'm hosting the list over on my website here's a direct link .

I'm always on the lookout for new ones, especially foreclosure/short sale ones with today's new market. If you come across one, please feel free to send it along for inclusion, I'll gladly give you credit here and on my list. Especially looking for Q,X & Z abbreviations. Look forward to hearing from you. Here's a little taste....
