Weekly Blend: May 25, 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:

A bun in the oven often calls for celebration, but a gun in the oven is just dangerous. A man suffered gunshot wounds after leaving his revolver in the broiler.

Don’t you hate it when the power goes out due to extreme zombie activity? The City of Lake Worth, Florida, sent out quite the alert, but thankfully there were no undead brain-eaters on the loose.

It’s safe to say most of us couldn’t wait to move out from our parents’ place and live independently. Not so for this 30-year-old man from New York. It took his parents five eviction notices and a court case to get him out of their house.

The “mushroom house” in Maryland is back on the market after an extensive remodel. If you’re a fun guy, you might want to check it out.

You wouldn’t be grumpy or dopey living in this house, which looks like it’s straight out of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The most expensive home on the east coast of North America is on the market for $175 million U.S., but it doesn’t even have a bowling alley, so is it really even worth it?

You can buy almost anything on Amazon it seems, and now you can add houses to that ever-growing catalogue. Do they have one-day delivery for these tiny homes, too?

And if you do end up purchasing a tiny home, check out these tips from REALTOR.ca’s Living Room on how to maximize small spaces.

This house is definitely big and tall people friendly. Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal’s 31,000 square-foot Florida mansion is on the market. Yes, it comes with a basketball court.

I think I found Santa’s southern getaway. The so-called “Christmas House” is located just outside of Detroit. Only Kris Kringle could classify Michigan as a southern destination.
