Weekly Blend: January 24, 2014

The Weekly Blend is your ‘weekly’ source covering real estate news and stories you may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web, newsgroups and forums looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to contribute, please post 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:

Why do houses in this Toronto neighbourhood sell in almost half the time as other neighbourhoods? Maybe T.O REALTORS® can answer.

And speaking of Toronto, this house in the hot market of Junction Triangle, went for over $200,000 asking price.

Is Colorado’s real estate market going to pot? Denver area REALTOR® Rona Hanson hopes so.

Is this entry to the Weekly Blend ‘house’ related? Probably not. Is it ‘Full House’ related? You betcha!

If you have a super-villain as a client then one of these properties may interest them.

A tour of an NYC neighbouhood circa 1993 with your tour guide Mr. Iggy Pop (video/some language may offend).

This house (and its corresponding video) may cause you to take a second look at some properties in your neighbourhood and this house will make you want to stand on your head.

Here’s a New York Times story about why renters renovate and here’s a Gawker follow-up warning renters not to renovate.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
