The Closing Word: Hackneyed

Image of Closing Word LogoThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you how to specifically implement it in business. A well-spoken, intelligent agent inspires confidence with clients and colleagues alike.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (HACK-need)

Lacking significance through having been overused; unoriginal and trite.

trite – banal – commonplace – threadbare – platitudinous


“When I place ads for my listings I work with a professional copywriter to avoid hackneyed phrases.”

“Lots of agents talk about going the extra mile and getting top dollar for your home, but let’s put thehackneyed sentiments aside and allow me show you my numbers for the past year.”
