Don Cherry Seeing Red Over Home-Auction Fib

Brokerbabble is one thing—after all, who doesn't expect a little hyperbole in a real-estate ad?—but eager sellers should try to avoid outright fabrications. Yesterday, famously-upholstered sports foghorn Don Cherry hit the roof (and Twitter) when the ad for a Mississauga mansion's upcoming auction claimed the home was his former abode. Auctioneer Ritchies and the PR firm have both issued apologies and retractions.

The eight-bedroom, twelve-bathroom mansion hits the auction block on August 17, along with a selection of its real owner's posh possessions—big chunky jewellery, luxury handbags, and a Ferrari 599 GTB (Cherry red, naturally).
