Weekly Blend: October 13, 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 Aussie real estate agent’s dorsal-finned “client” wanted to sink its jaws in some waterfront property. So she helped lift this shark into the ocean using her own bare hands!

James Woods’ real estate agent would not make a good talent agent. That’s because the listing implies the famous actor is selling his home so he can retire. Fake news.

Backyard rinks are certainly fun, but the skating rink being installed on the front lawn of Parliament Hill is sure to attract a fair share of shinny this winter.

Be king of the world in this French mansion. It’s being touted as the most expensive house on Earth, worth a staggering $517 million CDN.

Head to the basement of this lavish $185-million Switzerland estate and you won’t find a rec room or dirty laundry. No, you’ll find an underground lake.

Were those homes above too expensive? OK, then Johnny Carson’s former Malibu estate is available for a measly $81.5 million U.S.

This pine cone-shaped house doesn’t fall far from the tree. Suspended 30 feet above the ground, this home is for nature lovers everywhere.

Would you live in a wooden skyscraper? This proposed 80-storey building would be a Chicago landmark and it looks tree-mendous.

To the people who keep throwing pizzas onto the roof of this home used in Breaking Bad: you’re lucky the homeowner isn’t actually Walter White.

Here’s a scary thought: Thirty per cent of people surveyed in a recent poll said they are open to living in a haunted house.
