Weekly Blend: July 19, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

A $3.5 million land deal happened in Washington State and the main residents are gophers and butterflies.

What’s behind the front door… or any door for that matter… I guess you’ll just have to book an appointment.

Hawkstone Manor is up for sale with an asking price of a cool $14.9 million.

You can buy shirts for $5, CD’s for $3, but the building won’t come at the same bargain prices Honest Ed’s is known for.

Late with a rent payment? Were you abducted by aliens? Waiting for a tax refund? Didn’t have a stamp? Read about a Melbourne grandmother’s bizarre eviction notice.

For $53 million, you too can have your very own Batcave (or at least an underground mansion).

According to a Regina professor, Target stores are good for consumers.

When in India, why not try the Veg. Pizza McPuff™. In Thailand, you can have a Samurai Pork Burger. In Hong Kong, you can have onion rings. With 34,492 McDonald’s restaurants worldwide, there’s something for everyone… in almost every country.

Go to Beijing. Get married. Buy some property. Get divorced. That’s what’s been going on with some real estate investors in China.

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.
