The past few weeks have been an exciting time for actor/singer Justin Timberlake. His performance in The Social Network is garnering Oscar buzz, and he is rumored to be selling his loft in Tribeca and picking up a new penthouse in SoHo.

Timberlake purchased his 3 bed/3 bath loft only two years ago. Located at 414 Washington Street, he is currently within walking distance from St. John’s Park, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Tribeca, and the Hudson River Greenway. According to reports, Timberlake will be moving to the SoHo Mews.

Whether this move is real or not, it is sure to shake up the paparazzi for a little while, and Timberlake’s fans will be flocking to SoHo, hoping to see the famous singer/actor out and about.

Real estate agent Brad J. Lamb has been seen on HGTV’s Big City Broker, but he has been getting more publicity as of late for a bizarre poster ad for his business.

Playing off of his last name Lamb, his head is photoshopped onto a lamb’s body, and he is shown with his “team of experts,” which I guess are the four other normal lambs in the ad. Online, his ads have been called “totally creepy,” and some have suggested that Brad Lamb “needs help.”

What do you think? Is Brad Lamb’s campaign funny or creepy? Will it attract new customers or scare them away? Comment below and let us know what you think!

There have been rumors about Derek Jeter proposing to girlfriend Minka Kelly, and with Jeter putting his apartment on the market, those rumors are looking more likely.

Jeter has been living in his 4 bedroom, 5.5 bath penthouse apartment at Trump World Tower since 2001. He originally purchased the apartment for $12.6 million, and it comes with a chef’s eat-in kitchen, dining room, den, and living room with fireplace.

Yesterday, the Huffington Post posted an article about the average and median costs of a New York apartment. The average comes out to $1.3 million while the median cost is between $800,000 and $900,000, a good chunk of change for most folks these days. Now I feel a little better about my monthly rent…

On Monday, I posted a blog about radio personality Rush Limbaugh selling his Manhattan apartment and leaving New York. Interestingly enough, his apartment also recently made the Huffington Post’s Top Ten List of Hottest Luxury Homes. It is very rare that the Huffington Post has anything positive to say in regards to Rush Limbaugh, so this is something that is unlikely to happen ever again.

Check out the article here or go to http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/03/10-of-the-hottest-luxury_n_634681.html. Look at the pictures and let us know if you think his apartment deserves to make the top ten list.
