Weekly Blend: October 6, 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 too late now to say sorry, Justin. Bieber has become infamous in the Beverly Hills neighbourhood, so much so, property owners won’t rent their mansions to him.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so this Toronto homeowner should be over the moon knowing their neighbour wants to copy their house. Nope, instead there’s a lawsuit involved.

This house is going to make you Roar, and could probably sell Unconditionally. Pop superstar Katy Perry has listed her Hollywood Hills mansion for $9.5 million U.S.

This home has been passed down from generation to generation to generation to generation. This 15th century mansion is finally on the market after the same family has owned it for 400 years.

You get what you pay for. The cheapest house in Britain is selling for about $30,000 CDN and is a bit of a fixer-upper.

This house is out of the park! Former baseball slugger Barry Bonds is listing his Bay Area home for $6.6 million U.S.

I have to cross this dream house off my list. It only has three theme park-sized water slides attached to its 750,000-gallon pool. I won’t settle for anything less than four.

That’s one way to lure one of the biggest companies in the world. A Georgia town has offered to rename itself Amazon if the e-commerce site builds HQ2 there.

There’s a crazy amount of money to be made recording your day-to-day routines. This 27-year-old vlogger bought his parents a mansion with all the YouTube dollars he’s made.

Saving for a down payment on a home can take years, but not if you have complete strangers helping you. You can now crowdsource for a down payment.
