Funny estate talk or secret codes?

I keep hearing EPC and reading GGE in adverts, what do these mean? And why do estate agents continue to fry potential buyers heads off with these puzzles?

  • Estate agent talk, EPC stands for Energy performance certificate,often hidden in the home information pack. Its very useful information as you may guess from the meaning. GGE basically means there is a garage of some sort. hope this helps.

  • The previous answer is spot on as to why agents use industry jargon to confuse people is beyond me as i know it does confuse people. It something we try not do in our Business but it does still happen

  • Ah yes! 3-bed semi with GCH,DG,ORP etc etc. Does tend to sound like gobbledegook, but happens a lot in ads because there is usually a limited amount of text space available, and agents are trying to give as much info as possible. Omg!

  • EPC is and Energy Performance Certificate which forms part of a HIP - sorry, Home Information Pack. GGE of course is a frugal Estate Agent term for a Garage.

  • Most agents do not use abbrevations GGE is sometimes used as garage as previously mentioned sstc means sold subject to contract - which is quite common.
