Weekly Blend: May 26, 2017

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:

Donald Trump’s gold-hued Caribbean mansion (he calls it, “one of the greatest mansions in the world”) is on the market for a bigly $28 million U.S.

While Trump may have a Caribbean mansion, Canada’s leader, Justin Trudeau, has a pretty neat pillow fort retreat, thanks to some help from a 5-year-old contest winner.

Live in style in Harry Styles’ house. The former One Direction heartthrob put his Hollywood Hills bachelor pad on the market for $8.5 million U.S.

When we finally get flying cars, think about all that unused highway space. Maybe they’ll be turned into “sky gardens” like this one in Seoul, South Korea.

Ring around the homesy, pocket full of… nothing rhymes with “homesy.” This off-grid, circular home built in the forest has a unique loop design to it.

Rocks made up this house. Comedian Chris Rock and his wife, that is. But now they’re divorced, so you can buy the famous comedian’s old house for $3.85 million U.S.

Bidding for this historic church in southwestern Ontario starts at $1. Bring your Loonies!

Your idea of a starter home will be greatly different than reality star Kim Kardashian’s version. Her old Beverly Hills home is on the market for $5.5 million U.S.

Live out your old English fantasies in the same manor used for the 1995 TV adaption of Pride and Prejudice. It’s only $11.6 million U.S.

Want to make that drab listing pop? Sometimes all you need is paint. Here are nine ways to crank up the curb appeal.
