Weekly Blend: April 7, 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:

This traveler got quite the surprise when he landed in Sydney and didn’t see the famous opera house or any koalas. That’s because he mistakenly booked a trip to Sydney, Nova Scotia.

When’s the last time anything went 100 km/h or more on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto? This hyperloop system would make travel super speedy.

This isn’t just a model home; it’s a supermodel home. Tyra Banks is putting her New York “home in the sky” on the market for $17.5 million.

Don’t worry about this home’s foundation. Its modular, stackable design can adapt to any terrain.

You’ll always be close to public transit stops in this Ontario town. Innisfil is the first municipality in Canada to ditch busses for Uber.

If you buy this mansion, make sure you’re not a stone thrower. This $27.5 million “glass house” is for sale in Dallas.

This REALTOR® wasn’t about to let a potential home buyer view a home in the nude. No ifs, ands or butts about it.

Need a new pad for a Weeknd getaway? The L.A. mansion used in Toronto singer The Weeknd’s Starboy music video is on the market for $6.3 million.

Got $85 million to spare, old sport? If so, then you can purchase and throw lavish parties in the mansion used for the 2013 film adaption of The Great Gatsby.

 Here’s a list of 21 memes you need to send to that House Hunters addict you know. We all know one (or are that person).
