What words set apart West Palm Beach home listings? Perhaps surprisingly, “roman tubs,” is the winner, according to a report from the Palm Beach Post.

That phrase is ten times more likely in West Palm Beach ads than in others nationwide, according to results from a new database released by real estate data site In San Francisco, Calif. mention of yuppie grocery chain Whole Foods is common; in Grand Rapids, Mich., barns are frequently brought up, the Post said.

But what phrase is associated with the priciest listings nationwide? “Parlor floor.” That phrase is most frequently associated with Manhattan townhomes and mansions. “On average, homes calling out this feature are priced at nearly $5 million,” the Post said. [Palm Beach Post] –Guelda Voien
