Weekly Blend: December 15, 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:

The modest two-storey royal-to-be Meghan Markle called home while filming in Toronto is for sale. While it isn’t a castle, it does come with three bedrooms and two thrones.

This model home definitely has the It factor. An Edmonton man has created a tiny replica of the spooky estate featured in Stephen King’s It.

Ditch the giant inflatable snow globe on your front lawn. Simple, rustic decorations are what’s trending this holiday season.

I’m not sure whether to drool over these cakes or place them as décor in my house.

If you’re a REALTOR® with a sweet tooth, you might be wishing you had Khloé Kardashian as a client. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star gifted her agent a gingerbread house for the ages.

Gingerbread houses are one thing, but gingerbread cities are next level when it comes to sugar rushes. Sink your teeth into this recreation of Washington, D.C.

Mirror, mirror, making up the walls, what’s the fairest house of them all? You’ll be forgiven if you’re caught staring at Mexico’s famous mirrored house.

If all you care about is hitting the gym, tanning and doing laundry, you might want to empty your savings account to buy former Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s New Jersey mansion.

If you have a client who needs a driveway big enough to park their Crazy Train, point them to Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s former home, which just hit the market.

Need a big enough closet to store all the bell-bottoms you just can’t bear to throw away? Boogie on down to New York and purchase the house used in the iconic disco film Saturday Night Fever.

You might have 25-years-to-life’s worth of renovations ahead of you if you buy this old courthouse and prison for sale in Owen Sound, Ontario. Good thing it’s listed for only $99,000.
