Weekly Blend: June 16, 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:

Just up the Sea-to-Sky Highway in Whistler, Canada’s first “pod” hotel will be opening soon.

Meow, I don’t know about you, but if you’re a cat person, this house is purr-fect. Sitting on 20 acres of land, the “cat house” is going for only $240,000 U.S.

For sale: Beautiful six-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot house in the Hamptons for $12.7 million U.S.… which was the site of a high-profile murder in 2001. I’m sorry, what was that last part?

Want to Walk the Line where Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash lived? No, Folsom Prison isn’t for sale, but a waterfront property where the famous couple lived is on the market.

This whole house is one big optical illusion. What is real? Up is down. Black is white. I’m getting motion sickness trying to figure out how to get to the kitchen.

Good things are brewing in forgotten neighbourhoods as local craft beer scenes are having positive economic impacts in small towns.

This might be the best invention for REALTORS® since the key lock box. While the name could use some work, just check out the shoe booty dispenser.

Well, that stinks. A Pennsylvania family is rebuilding their home after a skunk snuck in and ruined it, causing $30,000 in damages.
