Weekly Blend: July 28, 2017

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:

This is a “mind-Benzing” proposal: a Honolulu condo developer is offering new-home purchasers a new Mercedes-Benz to go along with their new digs.

This motel for sale definitely has an It factor. That’s because it is filled with “nightmare fuel” – clowns. Once described as the scariest motel in America, the Clown Motel probably has regular vacancy.

Can I get some onion rings and wedding rings? This Niagara Falls chapel is now offering a drive-thru service.

Weird, I thought she lived in King’s Landing. Lena Headey, who plays the fierce Cersei Lannister in “Game of Thrones,” is selling her southern California home for $1.945 million.

This rental home has outstanding views of the water and could be classified as a penthouse. Hard hats are optional as this place used to be an industrial crane.

An open house doesn’t actually mean the house is open for everyone to waltz in, but Hollywood stars Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon didn’t get that memo.

And this is why I’m not going to Australia anytime soon. This spider that trapped a family inside their home is bigger than my MacBook.

While we’re at it, add Brandon, Manitoba to the list of places I’ll steer clear of for a bit. This man came home to a ball python slithering up the driveway.

One way to avoid cracking foundations is to not have one at all. OK, so this modern house technically does, but the home sure looks like its floating.

The house might be listed for $2 million, but I can only give you $200. Pull a Chumlee from Pawn Stars and lowball hard on his Las Vegas party crib.

As a REALTOR®, your car can sometimes be your office. Reclaim that space by getting yourself an office in a box. The HO Cube for Home Office opens up into a fully-functioning workstation.
