Real estate agents have been mocked online after leaving embarrassing errors in property advertisements.

‘Enjoy the lifestyle at famous Goolwa Beach, just down the road, swim, surf, hunt for cockles or head down and have a great feed at Bombora on the beach.’ 

The advertisement ended in the middle of the word ‘cockles’ and readers definitely noticed.

‘Never hyphenate cockles,’ one person said.

‘Man drought is so real it’s a hunt now,’ another person said.

‘Great proofreading,’ another said.

South Australia seems to have some eagle-eyed readers as they also spotted another advertising error in an Adelaide property.

The listing claimed buyers would be ‘awe struck at its finishing’s and immaculate attention to detail’.

However, the fumble came when the agent was describing the kitchen.

‘The contemporary kitchen area is complete with lux stone bench tops, modern stainless-steel appliances and loads of storage plus a w**k in the pantry,’ the ad read.

And while most readers were aware it was a spelling error, many were unable to stop themselves teasing the agent for the fumble.

‘Probably wouldn’t want to eat from their house,’ one person said.

‘Doesn’t sound very hygienic,’ another person joked.

The error has been fixed in the online version.
