Weekly Blend: February 1, 2019

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:

If you’re going to help a client list a home, you should probably make sure it’s theirs to begin with. This Colorado man apparently had beef with his neighbour, so he tried to advertise their house for sale in the local newspaper.

It’s no Folsom Prison, and that’s a good thing. The house where Johnny Cash and his wife June Carter Cash lived for 35 years is for sale in Nashville at a cool $3.9 million U.S..

The owners of this derelict “cow shed” really milked the property for all its worth. They turned the decrepit barn into a luxury, four-bedroom home with stunning views.

The owners of this old gas station are hoping to fill up their pockets with cash. This century-old gas station was converted into a modern, loft-like, two-bedroom home.

Is it a church? A casino? A castle? How about a doomsday bunker? Well, this fortress three hours outside of Las Vegas has elements to classify it as the above.

Is there anything more exciting than helping a first-time home buyer get into a house of their own? Make sure they don’t ruin it by making common decorating mistakes; pass along these seven helpful hints.

It’s Sunday. It’s 3 p.m. You’ve shown homes to several clients all day and your energy levels are running low, but there’s no time to enjoy a cup of coffee. Tim Hortons’ new Double Double coffee bar could give you the quick pick-me-up you need.

Wondering how you can evolve your design style this year? The good folks at Curbed have put together a design horoscope for 2019. Pardon me while I create a gallery wall themed around adventure.

Somewhere over the rainbow, you’ll find Kuşadası, Turkey. The resort town painted homes to look like a rainbow and it would make the perfect backdrop for your social media profile pictures.

The Super Bowl is Sunday and if you’re made of money you can rent out one of these lavish Atlanta homes to hold an MVP-worthy party. The cheapest one goes for $30,000 for the week.
