Estate agents are known to use certain phrases, usually either to exaggerate the benefits of a property or downplay its downsides.
A "blank canvas" might describe somewhere lacking furnishings, or a "low maintenance garden" might describe a concrete area out the back.
And there's currently a Ramsgate property on the market that hits the mark twice with popular phrases from estate agent bingo.
The three-bed home has been described as both a "great investment opportunity" and somewhere "in need of modernisation".

But as the agents will tell you, those sorts of descriptions also mean you tend to get value for money.
This particular house, in Heresdon Road, has had its asking price reduced again to just £200,000.
That's almost 40 per cent less than the average for other terraced properties in Kent, which according to Rightmove currently stands at £332,440.
As well as three bedrooms, it's also got a rear courtyard.
Estate agents Miles and Barr said: "Located in sought after east side of Ramsgate, this property is within easy reach of the town centre, the sea front, great schooling at both junior and grammar levels plus excellent transport links by road and train, including the high speed link to London, making this home ideally situated for all your needs.
"Inside you will find the property to be in need of modernisation throughout, but offers good accommodation currently comprising; entrance hall, front lounge, bathroom, kitchen leading to the rear courtyard, and second reception room on the ground floor.
"On the first floor you will find three double bedrooms and W/C. The property also benefits from a large loft, suitable for extended living – subject to planning.
"This property is ideal for investors and developers, and subject to planning permission, similar properties have been extended and converted into multiple units."
Agents also gave props to the local area, citing the harbour, the food and drink scene and the beautiful archictecture.
They added: "The property is also ideal for a buyer looking to open a business in the area.
"Ramsgate is situated on the southerly aspect of the Isle of Thanet and benefits the country’s only Royal Harbour, its status being granted by King George IV in 1821."
"The distinctive and beautiful harbour has a vibrant yachting community alongside some commercial activity and was where the Little Ships evacuation of Dunkirk set out from in 1940.
"The town is enjoying something of a Renaissance with its large amount of Grade II Listed property, many set within elegant Regency squares, or overlooking the sea, others with links to or influenced by the architect Augustus Pugin.
"In recent years the Royal Harbour has seen many restaurants, cafes and bars emerge alongside quirky independent retail outlets, some utilising the arches on the quayside beneath Royal Parade.
"The town is steeped in history with associations to many well known figures including Queen Victoria , Karl Marx and Vincent Van Gogh as well as having a fascinating network of tunnels beneath the main centre.
"The fortunes of the town have been hugely assisted by the recent addition of a high speed rail link to London St Pancras making a commute for many a viable option."
