Weekly Blend: May 17, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

By now many of you may have already seen this ad that went viral about one week ago. See how one of your fellow REALTORS® took the saying “honesty is the best policy” to heart when it comes to his advertising.

Have you ever felt that you were in a little over your head when it came to marketing a property? What about marketing a property that might be haunted? Some filmmakers from Los Angeles went to Kickstarter to help get their film The Selling a theatrical release.

I’m not 100% clear on the rules for Jenga… but I’m fairly certain that you lose the game if the structure collapses. Let’s hope this Tribeca property is built sturdier than the Jenga we’ve all played.

Was it love at first sight the moment your clients stepped inside their new home? Read the BMO “Psychology of House Hunting Survey” that CREBNow, the Calgary Real Estate Board’s daily blog, posted and see where your clients fit in.

Any commercial agents looking to help their client fulfill a dream of owning a restaurant? Don’t suggest any of these names… they’re already taken.

We all know that when it comes to buying a property it comes down to location, location, location. But never underestimate the power of good photography or, in this case, not so good photography.

“Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be just across the bay.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

REALTOR.ca has Walkscore… and this San Francisco blogger is reaching out to the Jewish community to help with their move.

During his five months on the ISS, I wonder if Cmdr. Hadfield saw any “For Sale” signs. The views – and the prices – must be out of this world.

Have a great long weekend!

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
