Weekly Blend: November 17, 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:

It’s a challenge to make your listing stand out, but this Quebec broker is on his way to an MTV Music Video Award. He covers an Ed Sheeran song to promote a listing and the video is going viral.

Live like Kevin McAllister for a night by splurging for the Home Alone 2: Lost in New York package at the Plaza Hotel. Kidnappers not included.

Can’t come to a decision in the artificial or real Christmas tree debate? Compromise with your partner and just get a Christmas pineapple. Yes, this is a trend.

I’ve found heaven for the architecturalist bookworm. China has opened the world’s coolest library with more than 1.2 million books lining its modern interior.

How much would you pay for the perfect art piece? Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi just sold for a record-breaking $450 million U.S.

Imagine owning John Lennon’s former home? You’ll need a little bit more than just love to purchase the home, listed for $11.7 million U.S.

It looks like Eva Longoria is desperate to leave her $14 million U.S. Hollywood Hills home – which she bought from Tom Cruise just two years ago – behind to move somewhere “more sleek.”

Any Doctor Who fan knows of the TARDIS, a time machine in the shape of a phone booth. But what if it was a bathroom? Well, then you’d have the TURDIS – a cheeky, fan-made bathroom being used as a selling point for this Australian home.

If you have a client who is house-hunting on an insanely tight budget, point them in the direction of Stoke-on-Trent, England. There are homes for sale for £1 a pop.

Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity, CREA has created the sweetest piece of real estate ever: a gingerbread dream home, complete with two-sleigh garage and cinnamon cookie flooring – all for a good cause.
