Weekly Blend: March 14, 2014

The Weekly Blend is your ‘weekly’ source covering real estate news and stories you may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web, newsgroups and forums looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to contribute, please post 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!
