Weekly Blend: April 28, 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:

Are you an emoji lover? You’ll ? over this Dutch building that incorporates popular emojis as decorative add-ons ?.

Ah, nothing like a Buzzfeed quiz to waste time. This one will tell you your dream job and age after you choose how to renovate a fixer-upper (I got 22-year-old interior designer).

If you’re looking for Views in the 6, you have plenty of options. Toronto ranked eighth for most skyscrapers in the world.

Shipping containers have so many uses: farms, off-the-grid getaway homes and, well, shipping stuff. But what’s super cool is using them as a pool.

It may not be fit for a king, but it was for Prince. The late music icon’s former Toronto mansion is for sale for $17.8 million.

Who has the job of counting ghosts residing inside homes? This one for sale in Texas apparently has nine haunting the halls.

Rotten food, animals, carpets and anything burnt. What do they all have in common? They can have grungy smells, which, in turn, could put off prospective buyers.

The house where Marilyn Monroe lived—and died—is for sale. So, if you like it hot, move to this $6.9-million L.A. mansion.

Some people drive to work. Some people take the bus or train. Others, like this Montreal-area woman, row their boats across a flooded roadway.

It’s Friday, go ahead, have that extra slice of pizza. Especially if it has 101 different cheeses on it! This Oregon pie shop just broke a world record.
