Weekly Blend: May 30, 2014

The Weekly Blend is your ‘weekly’ source covering real estate news and stories you may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web, newsgroups and forums looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to contribute, please post 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:

Take a gander around some of Toronto’s weirdest yards.

Tired of playing ‘Cards Against Humanity’? Now you can play ‘Cards Against (Toronto) Real Estate’. It’s a thing.

A Shanghai-based company is planning on investing up to $3-billion in Nova Scotia in real estate, technology and tourism hoping to lure Chinese tourists to Canada’s other coast.

Canada wins at most Starbuck’s locations per one million people. We do love our coffee.

“Open the patio door, Hal”…is perhaps something one might say in the HOUSE OF THE FUTURE!!!

Using the Twitter handle @HiddenCash, a wealthy real estate developer is anonymously stashing cash around San Francisco.

‘Female-friendly’ parking spaces are popping up in South Korea. Is it sexist or safety?

Say ‘Cheerio’ to the narrowest house in London town.

In the spirit of full disclosure, this man’s hedge is a dragon.

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.
