Weekly Blend: November 30, 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:

For less than what you’d pay for a cup of coffee, you could be the proud owner of a lot in this small New Brunswick village—a place where three vehicles at an intersection is considered a “traffic jam.”

I’m dreaming of a White (House) Christmas. Check out how Presidents of the United States have decorated the White House over the years.

Looks like Justin Bieber and his new bride, Hailey Baldwin, are trading the glitzy and glamourous Los Angeles lifestyle for the serene farmlands of Puslinch, Ontario, where Bieber bought a $5-million lakeside mansion.

Thought you’d never have the opportunity to be Bieber’s neighbour? Never say never. This private island cottage right next to Bieber’s new Puslinch home is probably attracting offers from diehard Beliebers.

Leave it to the stars when it comes to designing your home. No, I’m not talking about Bieber and Baldwin again. You might not realize it, but the month you were born and your zodiac sign may have influenced your décor choices.

Look out Fenway Park, a new ballpark for the MLB’s Oakland A’s could soon be the talk of the league. The “bigger than baseball” waterfront stadium is truly something to behold.

The ultimate man—or woman—cave exists in Portugal. This modern vacation home is built into the hillside.

Mario Lemieux’s Mont Tremblant mansion lives up to the legendary hockey player’s nickname—Le Magnifique—yet, after four months it remains on the market. Does the $21,999,066 price tag have anything to do with that?

Are you a sucker for BOGO deals? Eva Longoria, of ‘Desperate Housewives” fame, is selling her Hollywood Hills property for $9.8 million U.S.—but it comes with two houses!

That parking lot costs a lot. This 467-square-metre property in Australia is on the market for almost $1 million.
