Weekly Blend: January 26, 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:

Hallways are so 2017. My next house will allow me to travel from room-to-room by setting sail in my own indoor lazy river.

For the homebuyer who’s looking for more of a thrill, forget the lazy river home and check out this London house with a 50-metre water slide.

Get your home primed for buyers by tackling a few of these three-step home improvement projects. Be right back, getting a pegboard.
