Weekly Blend: December 14, 2018

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:

Willy Wonka would not take this well. A street in Germany was inadvertently paved in chocolate after a tank full of the sweet treat exploded. So much time and so little to clean up. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

As it turns out, apartments smaller than a parking space aren’t going over well with prospective home buyers in Hong Kong.

If you’re driving into Westford, Vermont, you’re going to get flipped the bird. A man raised a giant, wooden middle finger along Route 128 because the town won’t give him the building permit he wants.

This REALTOR® from Edmonton is employing an odd sales tactic in hopes offers for her listing don’t become extinct. Erin Hettle has posed a T. rex in pictures showcasing the home.

Not to be outdone by their colleague in Edmonton, a couple of REALTORS® from Baltimore posed the Grinch in photos of a home for sale. Oh, the Who-manity.

The White House has vivid red Christmas trees, but this year’s new trend might have you celebrating a Noël noir. Black Christmas trees are all the rage, especially for those expecting coal in their stockings.

Thailand’s tallest building has a feature that will shake acrophobics to their core. The glass tray observation deck sits more than 1,000 feet high and is all sorts of nope.

Would you describe any of your listings as a “neglected, run-down ragamuffin (that) needs urgent care?” This REALTOR® in New Zealand says being brutally honest is helping draw eyes to the home.

I said maaaaaaayyyyybe, you’re gonna be the one to buy Oasis former guitarist Noel Gallagher’s London home. It’s on the market for £2.5million.

It’s a flat fit for a future Queen. The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s former London home is on the market for £1.95 million.
