Someone created a listing for the White House using only emojis

Emoji long-form is here and it is coming to real estate

Mar.March 06, 2016 03:00 PM

There are currently 845 emoji characters commonly supported across most platforms. And since they are so much cuter than, you know, the alphabet, it’s only natural that people would attempt to communicate in emoji long-form.

But for Zoe Mendelson, a long-form emoji enthusiast according to Digital Trends, there was a further challenge still: creating a real estate listing for the White House using only emojis.

For instance, the address of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is written as a pencil and a van followed by the I and A emojis and a road, or “avenue” if you will. Fairly clever!

Mendelson included all the usual listing details, such as numbers of beds and baths, and other amenities. It sort of works! So is this the future of real estate listings? OMG IDK ☺ !?
