McDonald’s Is Secretly a $30 Billion Real Estate Company  [Quartz]   Is this why the soft serve machine is always out of order?

This Spring’s Real Estate Market Is Going to Be Even Busier Than Last Year’s  [Curbed DC]  My favorite part of this forecast is the pronouncement that “this is the year when Millennials enter the market.”  Did all the Millennials get together and take a vote or something?

This Abandoned Six Flags Is the Creepiest Place On Earth  [Abandoned Places]  My cursory study of these photos indicates that the life-sized Batmobile from “Batman: The Ride” has been stolen from the park, most likely by a rich eccentric who paid people to go in and steal it, and who now displays it in his home.  My money is on Nicholas Cage.

Trump’s Tax Plan Could Be a Jackpot for Luxury Real Estate  [Mansion Global]  Ohhh, I never realized why rich people took out mortgages on houses they could buy in cash.  It’s for the tax deductions!
