Weekly Blend: December 7, 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!

This NBA legend’s house sure looks sweet. Charles Barkley’s former “Sugar Land” house in San Antonio is for sale.

Frank Sinatra famously swooned over New York, New York, but his Malibu beach home is getting attention these days. The former home of Ol’ Blue Eyes is on the market for $19 million USD.

Sure, this bathroom looks elegant and oh, so relaxing, but there’s something potentially dangerous with this listing picture. Can you spot it on first glance?

What’s going to be the hot design trend in next year? If you’re a fan of wood finishes, open shelving, and coloured kitchen cabinets, 2019 is your year!
