Weekly Blend: May 5, 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:

This green initiative stems from the fluffy white stuff. Oslo’s airport now stores snow from the runways underground to help cool the terminal in the summer.

I don’t know what a “python developer” is but it sounds too dangerous. Not to worry, “real estate agent” also cracked the list of Canada’s top 10 jobs.

Lay the SmackDown – and maybe some new flooring – in this house recently used in the WWE’s “House of Horrors” match. It can be yours for $36,000.

The Englishman in New York is on the move. The NYC penthouse owned by Sting – the musician, not the wrestler (I know, where did these wrestling references come from?) – is for sale.

This family home is ?.That’s because it used to be a New York City firehouse and seems to be a replica of the Ghostbusters office.

This REALTOR® from San Francisco left handwritten letters on doorsteps offering to buy houses in the Sunnyvale neighbourhood for as much as $2.5 million.

Your future home could be in spot G4. This vending machine-like skyscraper concept could 3D print homes on site. (VIDEO)

Your life as a REALTOR® is busy enough. Instead of eating AND drinking, save some time at breakfast by replacing a caffeinated beverage with a caffeinated bagel.

Why bother hiding wires when they can become décor on your walls? This art project will shock you, hopefully not literally.

I’ll take the presidential suite please. Former U.S. President Barack Obama’s post-university bachelor pad is for sale.
