Visual Description:  “The three most important things about real estate is . . . “

ERCKE  =  CREEK,  CBKOL  =  BLOCK,  DEROTN  =  RODENT,  YAOENN  =  ANYONE   —   Giving us:  RELCRDEAYN

Clue/Question:  The new laundromat in the Sahara turned out to be a . . .

Answer:  DRY CLEANER
(Not bad!  The first two clue words were pretty simple.  And, I know we’ve seen “anyone” before, but with different scrambling.  And, “rodent” shouldn’t have been too hard to get, but it was.  At least for me it was!  I had to back into it.  Fortunately, the answer wasn’t very hard.  But, there was no give away in the layout of the answer letters.  Today’s Jumble gave me a kind of “Ishtar” feeling.  A movie that I – surprisingly? – never saw!  How many people would even admit to seeing that bomb?  Okay, kids.  Fill in the dot dot dot of the Visual Description.)   —   YUR

    Rodent took me forever, and I actually had to back into it after solving the Question.

    It’s an interesting word. In addition all to the common letters it contains, there were lots of popular letter-combination possibilities – “er,” “ed,” “end,” “tr,” “dr,” etc., making it more difficult.

    Got CREEK! Got BLOCK! My mind has been distracted lately, so I cheated a little on RODENT and completely (by mistake) on ANYONE! I then forgot to finish the puzzle and saw the answer here! DRY CLEANER! Good puzzle with challenges, but I’m tired today! Ishtar! Never saw it! Never will!
