Weekly Blend: September 13, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

This dazzling desert gem, located in the heart of Las Vegas, comes complete with two elevators, two Jacuzzis, a sauna, dance floor and more. It can be yours for just $1.7 million. Oh, did I mention that it is 26 feet underground?

I’ve always found it interesting that buildings don’t have a 13th floor but airports have a Gate 13. FYI – less than 5% of residential condo buildings in the NYC area have a designated 13th floor.

Kitchener-Waterloo REALTORS® tee-off and together raise over $20,000 for the Lutherwood’s Safe Haven Shelter.

This quote (said by Apu), from one of my favourite Simpsons episodes can be applied to a few homes around the GTA. “This is the room with electricity. But it has too much electricity. So, I don’t know, you might want to wear a hat.”

The name may be difficult to pronounce (the Wohngenossenschaft Soldaritaet Co-op apartments) but this mural in Berlin is designed to brighten up an otherwise drab block of apartments.

Forget ‘is there life on Mars’…a German architectural firm is devising a way to have robot built houses on Mars.

Toronto’s tiniest house just sold. It’s the size of a tool shed and it went for $165,000.

Google street view goes underground and lets viewers discover the underground cathedral within the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
