Weekly Blend: April 21, 2017

The Weekly Blend is your “weekly” source covering real estate news that you just may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to share please feel free to share it in our comments section or tweet about it using the hashtag #WeeklyBlend. So brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories. Maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Iceberg, right ahead! This Newfoundland community became quite the tourist spot after a massive iceberg ended up near the shoreline.

A rural Manitoba couple was shocked to discover a lightning bolt struck their home, charring some of their possessions.

Come sit a spell at this English farmhouse for sale which was home to two alleged witches.

No, seriously, it’s not delivery, it’s Delissio. Google Maps mistakenly labeled this man’s house as a pizza shop and he was getting unwanted customers.

Here’s another reason to keep checking Google Maps: Netflix’s acclaimed series 13 Reasons Why was caught in the act of filming on location.

Speaking of Google, you have to travel the globe on the new and improved Google Earth. The new 3D mapping is out of this world.

What’s a Weekly Blend without some Drake news? This woman was on her Worst Behavior when she broke into the famous Toronto rapper’s L.A. home.

Jared Leto’s Hollywood Hills home has an oddly specific $1.999-million price tag. Seems like a price only a Joker would come up with.

It’s like a Roomba for your lawn. Robot lawn mowers are here and I say it’s about time we get automated grass grazers!

I just discovered “momager” is a term used to describe Kris Jenner of the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Anyway, the house they film in is for sale for $9 million U.S.
