Weekly Blend: June 8, 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:

Could porcelain accent chairs be the new thing? A Toronto house with an exposed toilet—and shower stall—in the living room is selling for $900,000.

While we’re on the topic of waste, you might think that sunroof of yours is a luxury… until you get projectile feces from a passing plane flung into your eyes.

Ferrari seems to think the CN Tower is in Montreal. The Formula One team posted a promotional video announcing, “We are ready for Montreal,” however, it featured Toronto’s skyline.

As if the Ford family needs more media attention these days, but a mysteriously crude “house for sale” sign has raised a lot of eyebrows since it was erected on the late Rob Ford’s family home early this week.

It must be nice being the world’s richest man. Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, could buy every house for sale in Pittsburgh 40 times over!

This Georgia estate must have a fairly large mantel. I mean, it has to be big enough to fit two Academy Awards, three Golden Globes and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. Ben Affleck’s mansion is on the market for $8.9 million.

O, how sweet! Oprah Winfrey’s new $8 million estate off the coast of British Columbia is the perfect cabin. Take a look inside.

Pop singer Shakira is using her brother as the sales agent for her six-bedroom Miami Beach property. It’s fair he’ll be taking calls from interested buyers Whenever, Wherever.

The bedroom is supposed to be a place of sanctuary, but you might not rest so easy after learning about the toxins present in things like your lights or carpet.
