Bad Grammar/Spelling

There is a house for sale south of us which is a for sale by owner. Since we have friends looking for a house I picked up the little flier they had beside their sign. I am thinking that the parents told their kids to write up the ad but who knows. I also considered they may be homeschoolers who dared to let their kids write up the ad and are planning to give the kids a cut of the sale of the property. Anyway, after reading the ad I suggested to my friends that they offer 200 dollars as they might not notice where the decimal point was.

Here is the ad. I will try to type this the way it appears:
