5 words to strike from your vocabulary

Buyers, sellers, agents take note . . .

Forbes conducted an informal poll of communication experts and career advisers to discover the biggest turn-off words.

These words are most commonly used as fillers, qualifiers, and jargon. Among the words to strike from common use:

  • Like -The word shows incompetence and poor communication skills.
  • Never - It "eliminates even the possibility of an idea -- it can be discouraging and naive," according to Forbes experts.
  • Innovative - This has become an overused buzz word.
  • Probably - It's tentative and doesn't reflect confidence.
  • No - Nobody wants to hear "no," so try replacing it with "I wish I could," experts note.
