Weekly Blend: August 9, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

London (Ont.) calling… and REALTORS® answered by holding a fundraiser for Alberta Floods Fund.

A story from late last week about a first in Canada – Vancouver social housing being built from shipping containers (with video).

Maybe a fortunate son has the cash to buy John Fogerty’s $23M Beverly Hills mansion. (Beware of the old man down the road.)

If you have a problem assembling IKEA furniture, Chairigami might be for you.

Have you ever heard this song? Make it a reality and put an offer in on one of these two beautiful lighthouses.

It’s an American stat, but how similar is the situation in Canada? Do you have a “Millennial” living at home?

Welcome to the “Zero House” – an ecofriendly smart house that’s not such a far-fetched idea as it once was.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
