This week’s most-clicked houses on � brought a new batch of homes to our attention. Well, we did see a couple of repeats—we’re looking at you, Palazzo di Amore and creepy castle in New York—but we were overjoyed to see the diversity in this week’s crop.
Over half of the homes on the list are modestly priced (under $375,000) and hail from a variety of locales.
Taking over the top spot this week is a private lakeside retreat that served as the vacation getaway for late Minnesota Twins legend Kirby Puckett. The Hall of Famer’s home on Wisconsin’s Deer Lake generated about three times as many clicks as the house in our No. 2 spot: the Knoxville residence of fired Tennessee basketball coach Donnie Tyndall.
In the third spot is a home whose sudden popularity this week compelled us to consult with the agent, who cited a substantial marketing push over the weekend. We’re guessing many of the other homes on our list also have their listing agents to thank for launching them into this week’s top 10. A savvy strategy goes a long way for homes brimming with curb appeal.
Here’s what you loved most of all this week:
10. 1670 Lincoln Ave, Lakewood, OH
Why so popular? Built in 1915 and newly renovated, this Colonial should have been on our list of the coolest homes in the Cleveland area.
9. 330 Justin Dr, Woodstock, GA
Why so popular? We’d guess the enormous backyard is driving interest. As the listing says, “Loads of room for outdoor living!”
8. 4250 Echo Ct, Pleasanton, CA
Why so popular? Perhaps because Stoneridge Mall is nearby. But we’re betting the “gourmet kitchen with granite countertops” has a lot to do with it.
7. 18 Douglas St, Greenbrier, AR
Why so popular? According to agent Bill Tobias, the property is new on the market and “it’s highly unusual to find a rustic home like this in the city limits of Greenbrier.”
6. 132 W Grand St, Palatine Bridge, NY
Why so popular? It’s a castle! (Plus it was last week’s most-clicked home.)
5. 32 Church St, Camden, NY
Why so popular? It’s possibly haunted. You might have seen your ghost-lovin’ uncle post this house on Facebook.
4. 9505 Lania Ln, Beverly Hills, CA
Why so popular? Duh. It’s the most expensive house in the country.
3. 2112 Debra Ct, Bourbonnais, IL
Why so popular? Listing agent Sherri Lockman-Crawford said she dropped the price and did a big marketing push over the weekend. It worked—the house is now under contract.
2. 9536 Fortress Ln, Knoxville, TN
Why so popular? It’s the home of former Tennessee Vols hoops coach Donnie Tyndall.
1. 1339 Hungerford Pt, Saint Croix Falls, WI
Why so popular? It’s Baseball Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett’s former lake house.
