Weekly Blend: July 27, 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:

If only I could be rewarded with a $500,000 mansion for doing menial tasks such as high-fiving, playing dead and leaping on tables. This Chinese man’s best friend is one lucky dog.

That hefty down payment can leave a bank account barren of funds, which makes it more difficult to decorate a new home. Check out this list of no-cost decorating ideas.

At a quick glance, the $21,999,066 price tag for this remarkable Mont-Tremblant mansion/castle seems odd. That is until you realize it belongs to hockey legend, Mario Lemieux, who famously wore No. 66.

Take a look at the most “interesting roof put on a sports complex anywhere in the world.” The aperture-like roof of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium has a ceiling made up of eight giant, 500-ton “petals”.

You can buy Calgary for $1.2 million! OK, not the actual city in Alberta, but its namesake. Scotland’s Calgary Castle, originally built in the 1700s, is now on the market.

Last week, we told you “The Brady Bunch” home is for sale. Well, “It’s Tearin’ Up My Heart” to tell you former *NSYNC member Lance Bass is aggressively pursuing it for $1.88 million U.S.

If this home’s walls could talk, they would sing the blues. Any guitar enthusiast would love to make this home their “Pride and Joy” considering it was where Stevie Ray Vaughan grew up.

If this home’s walls could talk, they would sing rock n’ roll. If Stevie Ray Vaughn’s house is too modest for you, check out guitarist Jack White’s former Detroit home, which is listed for $1.2 million.

Why does a T-Rex hate doing house chores? Because it makes him feel dino-sore. (Ba-dum-tss!) This listing has more than 10 million views and impressions because of its hilarious pictures of a Tyrannosaurus Rex living its best life.

Robert Kirkman, co-creator of the hit franchise “The Walking Dead,” has put his Los Angeles home up for sale. Surprisingly, it doesn’t look the slightest bit zombie-proof.
