Always remember the three rules of real estate: Location, location, Pokémon

 

The large bay windows offer a great view of nearby Squirtles, while the corner store downstairs is a great place to get eggs. Plus, it’s a PokéStop.

Such talk is not just the stuff of comedy anymore as a growing number of real estate ads are noting Pokémon Go amenities alongside real-world details such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms.

A Pokémon Go logo is the first picture in this listing for a Nashville-area condo. It offers a mix of features, including a washer-dryer hookup and granite countertops as well as a PokéStop and access to rare Pokémon. There is also a brand new gym listed, but it is unclear if this is of the sweaty or Poké variety.

This Seattle apartment has a PokéStop outside the window and, in case you actually have to work for a living, is within walking distance of Amazon’s offices.

Or, if you want to mix work and Pokémon, this San Francisco co-working space offers an ideal work environment for $450 per month.

“Located between 4 PokéStops, you could be catching Pokémons during your work break on our balconies for hours,” the ad boasts. “Pokémons caught here include Eevee, Clefairy, Venonat, Pikachu, Goldeen, Exeggcute, Jigglypuff and many more.”

Only then does the ad start to talk about things like Wi-Fi, desks, conference rooms, etc.

But since the fad may end, why not try out this short-term rental in Brooklyn, which boasts a PokéStop accessible from inside.

While many of the ads were Craigslist rentals, home sellers also got in on the act, such as this Realtor.com listing for a home in Crossroads, Texas, that has four PokéStops in the community, or this one in South Carolina that boasts it is just half a mile from a PokéStop. Half a mile? Man, the sacrifices one has to make to live in the suburbs.
