Weekly Blend: February 16, 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:

Pay no attention to the house behind the fake garage doors. To get around their city’s planning laws, a couple from England tried to hide their tiny, secret home.

This 500-square-foot apartment is filled with Instagram backdrop potential. Featuring pastel colours, bright light and a clean, modern look, a picture taken from inside this home will have no trouble getting all the #interiordesign likes.

Well, hot dog! If you buy this New Zealand couple’s house (which doubles as a butchery), they’ll throw in their world-famous sausage recipe.

It’s a Sign of the Times Harry Styles is growing up. The former One Direction singer is selling his stunning Los Angeles bachelor pad for $8 million U.S.

You know you’ve made it when your first home isn’t a fixer-upper, but instead a “starter mansion.” NBA star Steph Curry is selling his Charlotte home for $1.55 million U.S.

The owner of the Edmonton Oilers has just bought the most expensive house ever listed in Los Angeles County. The wealthy Canadian investor reportedly forked over $120 million U.S. for the 15,000-square-foot house.

You could literally stumble upon a gold mine if you purchase this Arizona property. A 117-acre piece of land could have $60 million worth of gold hidden in underground tunnels.

 Dog-crazy millennials are spoiling their four-legged friends by purchasing homes with amenities built specifically for their fur babies. Having canine concierge services might fetch some offers.

This Quebec used-car salesman must be very good at his job. He has attached a “for sale” sign to a giant snowbank on his dealership’s property. What can’t this guy sell?! 

If a 70-storey skyscraper is completely made out of wood, does that make it the world’s coolest/tallest/most expensive treehouse?
