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:
No kidding around, this job might be the Greatest Of All Time. Edmonton is willing to pay up to $43 for a “goat co-ordinator.” Hay, that’s not baaaaad!
You’ll need tiger blood in your veins if you want to buy Charlie Sheen’s Beverly Hills Home for $10 million. No word on how many bathrooms the house has, but I’ll guess two and a half?
This Singapore estate literally has some skeletons in the closet, but its buyers don’t seem to care. The Sembawang Hills Estate terrace sold for $2.23 million after a frenzied 12-minute auction.
You haven’t made it until your home has a designated room to store $100,000 worth of Air Jordans. That’s OK, the shoe collection is worth only 0.5% of the mansion’s asking price.
Entering the “real world” after college is a scary endeavour. Maybe that’s why this former college student is refusing to vacate her dorm, even after racking up $100,000 US in unpaid charges.
Forget expensive home security systems or guard dogs, the best line of defence against robbers might be a feisty 99-year-old grandmother.
This bedroom looks straight out of Tatooine and is for any diehard Star Wars fan. The force is strong in this renovation.
