So it’s no surprise that this week’s most popular home on Realtor.com® is known as the “Skinny House” in Sacramento, CA. While the front facade appears like any other home, the thin property measures only 8 to 12 feet deep. What it lacks in space it made up for in interest from gawkers and potential buyers alike—the $448,000 home is pending sale after just a couple of weeks on the market.
If thin isn’t your thing, there are plenty more popular properties to peek at. You also clicked on Pennsylvania’s magazine-worthy Hortulus Farm, the $3.3 million Double R Ranch, and a groovy 1970s time capsule in San Antonio.
Suffice it to say, we won’t judge you if you go back for seconds when perusing this week’s buffet of click-worthy homes.
