Weekly Blend: June 22, 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:

For out-of-this-world views, post up in this lunar lander-inspired vacation home. You won’t be launching into outer space in this tiny home, but at least you don’t have to deal with astronaut food.

While the island in this New Brunswick home’s kitchen is definitely a focal point for some, my eyes are only drawn to the floss-dancing REALTOR® seen in this now-viral promotional video.

It’s only fitting the New York Yankees’ all-time hits king, Derek Jeter, was living in a castle. Now, he’s listing the historic Tiedemann Castle for $14.75 million U.S.

This house has a Flea infestation. Don’t worry, that’s a selling point in this case! The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist, known by his insect nickname, put his Los Angeles home on the market.

Grammy-winning musician Akon has plans on building his own city in Senegal using his own form of cryptocurrency called AKoin (because, of course), which would serve as the city’s central form of exchange.

Stereo systems used to be a focal point of a living room but, in the near future, high quality sound will be hidden in the form of furniture.

The in-depth, behind-the-scenes story of how this Los Angeles-based real estate professional sold Wayne Gretzky’s home is a great one.

When it comes to home design trends, let’s just hope what’s old isn’t always new again. Take for example furry toilet seat covers, carpeted bathrooms and animal print anything.

This three-bedroom house in New Zealand is being sold using an head-scratching tactic. Have you ever sold a home for a client this way?
