Ma & Pop as Housemates?! It used be shameful to move back in with the parental units as an adult. But with unemployment sky high & cost of living rocketing, 3 out of 10 Gen X/Gen Y/Millenials are living back home. Don't be ashamed! Embrace it! Here's why:
A Mississippi real estate agent from Bob Leigh Realtors showed home buyer Terry Jordan a house 3 times & then sold it to her. Terry then spent thousands on a new roof, electrical & plumbing and in the process discovered the county records didn't quite match her house. Her realtor fessed up: "I don’t know how to tell you this but we might have sold you the wrong house” What?! How can this happen? Oh wait, it's Mississippi. Things are done a bit different in the country.
There is something very jungle about this room (San Francisco St. Regis Hotel). Can't you just see Tarzan lounging around there in a loincloth (patterned of course)? I am tempted to post a salacious pic of that but this is a family blog (usually).
There ain't no reason to have such a ginorous mirror by your bed!
That's just un-Christian!
According to legend, following the passing of her husband from tuberculosis, the distraught Mrs. Winchester sought the counsel of a Boston-area psychic. The psychic informed the widow that her family was cursed by the spirits of everyone killed by her husband's rifles and, in order to appease them, she should move out west and use her considerable fortune to built a giant temple in their honor. She was told that, as long as construction of said temple never stopped, the spirits wouldn't take their revenge by killing her. As such, she bought a plot of land a few miles outside of San Jose and spent the remainder of her life building. (via Huffington Post)
Twitter's impending relocation to Mid-Market district has driven local rents up 60%! This also has driven out the local flavor of the area. Soon, the vagabonds, addicts and ladies of the night will be replaced with tech yuppie tweeting on their smartphones and IT hipsters sipping their hoity toity coffee.
If you live in Chelsea NYC, you are in luck! This church-run asylum has been sold to a developer who is transforming the ex-looney bin into 6 luxury units.
When Naples authorities raided Italian mobster Nicola Schiavone's house, they found an "Aladdin's cave of luxury tackiness." To be perfectly honest, I have seen this decor before. There is certain aesthetic that single rich male douchebags all subscribe to: Too much money to spend & too little taste to show! This house could be one of any newly minted millionaire nouveau riche dot com guys in SF. I'm just sayin'!!
The Miami house, where scenes from the landmark porno Deep Throat were shot, has been languishing on the market. Apparently no one wants this piece of XXX history. This would have made a great set for the new Hollywood film Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried!
After searching high and low for your dream home, you can't keep it to yourself, right? You have to show off, er, I mean share it with your friends and family! Here are some of my ideas for eHow.com.
...this would be her property! Hotel "Under The Sea" ain't just a fantasy. It is underway in Dubai aptly named Hydropolis.

This is one of those things some over indulgent fat cat builds just to say they have a helicopter pad on their roof. I'll bet you can count the # of times it's been used on one hand. This is located in the Hollywood Hills (where else?!).
From afar, it looks like a revolving restaurant, don't it?
Kevin Federline is 7 months behind on his rent & his landlord is fed up! Dude, you have no job. Gotta downsize from that mansion!
I get asked that question time and time again. So when HuffPost asked me to pen a blurb, I thought what perfect timing to get it off my chest! It's Confessions of a Gaysian Realtor (giggle). Please tweet it, Facebook it, leave comments on the page...share up the wazoo!
It's both! Looks like a really really really big sterile hospital room. There is one kind of person who would never buy this house. Cocaine addict!
