Weekly Blend: August 25, 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 headline about a unique multi-structured glass and sequoia house in New Jersey begs for a punchline: “An architect and an artist walk into a barn.” I need to know what happens next!

If there’s a Bob on your roof, chances are he’s a roofer. If there’s a bobcat on your roof, chances are it’s on the hunt. If it’s Bobcat Goldthwait, your house is a comedy club.

Punching a home intruder in the nose is probably not the safest idea, especially if it’s a 250-pound black bear.

Mark Twain once called puns the “saddest evidence of intellectual poverty.” Well, Mark my words, I will never be able to afford this farm he once owned. (And now he’s rolling over in his grave.)

And why is Stephen King apparently such a bad neighbour? There are five homes currently for sale on his tree-lined Maine street, fittingly nicknamed The Green Mile.

Be a couch potato on these pieces of fast food-inspired furniture. Seriously, who hasn’t thought about curling up between giant hamburger buns? Hold the relish.

There are certain things you want in working order before you buy: roof, windows and furnace. This house for sale is missing one of those items, allowing you to stargaze from the comfort of your living room.

A country mansion with an area of 930 square metres is up for sale in Russia for 3,000… bitcoins. Currency matters, folks. That works out to about $15.7 million.

Someone must have given Rihanna her money. The superstar singer just bought a new Hollywood Hills home for $6.8 million.

Celebrities are just like us sometimes. They put their pants on one leg at a time, go grocery shopping and even do home renovations. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth just bought a $5.8-million fixer-upper.
