The Best Way to Show a House?
A Dutch homeowner in the Netherlands created a very memorable – and labor-intensive – way to show homebuyers his home: he built a rollercoaster tour in and around his home for people to ride through his home, efficiently showing them the home. It’s definitely a cool idea, provided you trust his construction of the rollercoaster and don’t want to open any drawers, cabinets or closets – the rollercoaster does not stop. See the video from homebuyers on the rollercoaster here.

High Price for High Fidelity
If you’re a John Cusack fan, take note: the Bodine Building loft at 2250 W. Ohio St., the setting for the High Fidelity scenes, in which John Cusack’s character tracks down an ex-flame years after their breakup, hit the market recently for $1.195 million. Joe Gasparra from Coldwell Banker is the listing agent, and other than some new kitchen appliances, he says, the space looks the same as it did when filming took place there in 1999; the finishes seen in various listing photos still match up with the scene in the film. See more details on the Huffington Post.
