Weekly Blend: March 16, 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:

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and these homes in the Emerald Isle will sure make you green with envy.

Yes, but does it come with a detached garage? If your client is in the market for a place to host 1,452 of their closest friends, steer them to this $55-million cruise ship that’s for sale.

Luxury cruise ships not for you? Need something a bit more rugged looking for the high seas? The New Zealand Navy is looking to sell one of its warships.

Just when you think you’re finally done personalizing your home, you find out Oprah Winfrey has a bathtub carved to the shape of her body.

Talk about a water bed! A futuristic, floating orb-like hotel room experience is coming to Japan.

After more than 100 days on the market, the infamous Toronto townhouse ridiculed on social media for being so rundown still managed to sell for $675,000.

You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in this house? They call it a Royale with Cheese. (If you don’t get this reference, you won’t care to purchase this one-story residence used in the cult classic film Pulp Fiction.)

Maybe this 14-year-old Vancouver girl shouldn’t get into an event-planning career. That’s because a party she threw in a rented home caused $20,000 in damages.

Good luck finding 10 things you hate about the house from 10 Things I Hate About You. The real-life Victorian home featured in the 1999 film is on the market for $1.6 million.

Would you like a coffee with that? How about hundreds of coffees? A Newfoundland woman thought she was getting a chicken sandwich, but ended up with a bag full of winning Roll Up The Rim prize tabs.
