Worst Craigslist Ads
The worst of the worst apartment ads. Jumpshell looks at a lot of Craigslist apartment listings. We like to keep tabs on the worst way to find apartments, so we can continue building the best way to find apartments. Beyond looking like what nails on a chalkboard sounds like, they are almost completely devoid of any information that’s helpful in letting you know if you’ll even enjoy living there.

$1600 / 2br – *~*~*WINTER HILL WINNER*~*~*HW FLOORS*~*~*LAUNDRY*~*~*~ Note the alluring dance that the asterisk and the tilde play. Then once you get INTO the listing — well your life just changes. I believe “tons of natural light” is close to — but not quite as impressive as — “drenched in sun.”

$1950 / 1br – |Cambridge||=(–)=|NOW||Central|A/C||PKG|INCL|for|$1950|=(–)= I mean the only problem I see here is that the resolution on the picture might be too high. My eyes hurt if a picture is too clear. Also, I get nervous when there are too many features listed — for instance this listing has “A/C”.
