Weekly Blend: February 9, 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:

Whoever is charged with stealing this Houston couple’s home should be put on house arrest.

As if losing a Super Bowl in heart wrenching fashion wasn’t enough, superstar New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski returned home only to discover he’d been robbed.

Good luck fitting a chair into this New York apartment. At $950 per month, the rent seems like a steal … until you realize you’re only getting 68-square-feet.

Ay 91 inches wide, this London home seems like a mansion compared to the apartment highlighted above.

A dog isn’t truly man’s best friend until it can shovel snow, fetch beer and vacuum the house, like this B.C. man’s pup – a true champion doggo.

An Ottawa-area couple needs to stock up on garlic and crucifixes as they have quite the battle on their hands. After buying their “dream home” they discovered a bat infestation in the attic.

The 2018 Winter Games have arrived! If you’re a fan of a sport that has athletes rocketing down an icy track at break-neck speeds, this house is for you; it comes with its own huge luge track.

The Olympics shine a light on the world’s best athletes, but not if they stand near this pavilion. That’s because the world’s darkest building is in Pyeongchang and absorbs 99% of light.

How would you like to own a $375,000 house with only a $10 down payment? A Saskatoon man is using an online contest to sell the family home.

This house is so aesthetically pleasing, I don’t know where to look first. With curved floor-to-ceiling windows, marble everything and a dual staircase, it’s no wonder the mansion is getting a lot of attention.
