Weekly Blend: September 8, 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:

A house modeled after a UFO better have a lot of storage space. This New Zealand home is truly out of this world.

Former “Bachelorette” JoJo Fletcher and her fiancé Jordan Rodgers (who’s not as cool as his brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers) shared a video of them flipping a house on Instagram. Is there a new realty series in the works for HGTV?

Homes for sale can be targets for thieves. Unfortunately for the owners trying to sell this Arizona house, about $160,000 worth of valuables were taken.

To combat the affordable housing crisis in England, officials have committed to installing solar panels on 800,000 low-income homes.

Since plans to turn notorious Lizzie Borden’s former mansion into a bed and breakfast got axed, the Massachusetts home is now up for sale.

Think about how many pails were used to build this, the world’s tallest sandcastle. (I’m already longing for summer.)

A paper salesman’s salary wouldn’t fund this French Renaissance Revival townhouse in Brooklyn. The home of actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt is for sale for $8 million.

Developers blew the roof off of this 17th-century English home. Its 400-year-old ceiling was destroyed to make room for student housing.

You can live off the grid in this solar-powered RV, but you still might get caught in gridlock, depending on where your travels take you.
