Weekly Blend: March 9, 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:

Having trouble getting rid of ice on your driveway? Beat it with beet juice.

The town of Brockville, Ontario, wants to demolish an historic church to pave way for residential development. The problem is opponents of the idea are trying to protect the church’s longtime residents – ghosts.

This apartment is for the crazy cat person in your life (hey, we all know one). At just 330-square-feet, it’s been professionally redesigned to comfortably house 51 cats.

The Playboy Mansion is now a protected piece of property in Los Angeles. The new owner has agreed not to demolish the world-renowned estate made famous by Hugh Hefner.

This affordable A-frame house is an A+ idea. That’s because it only takes two people to build it.

With neighbours like this, who needs enemies? A Texas woman was caught vandalizing a nearby home for sale by supergluing the door knobs and spray painting the windows.

The former home of the “Baddest Man on the Planet” has been sold and is being repurposed as a church. Boxing champ Mike Tyson’s tigers will not be allowed in the pews, however.

Rihanna made a cool $100,000 when her West Hollywood home finally sold after five months on the market. With that kind of profit, she can take a vacation from her work, work, work, work, work, work for a while.

A fresh coat of paint can be a seller’s best friend. Here is a list of five colours that are trending heading into spring.

We’re heading into spring and homebuyers are getting ready to pounce. What better way to pump your clients up other than by giving them this ultimate real estate-themed music playlist.
