Bargain hunter alert! There’s a great Ohio home on the market with a opening bid of just $1. Not surprisingly, the single-buck sensation is this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®.
Built in 1973 and sitting on 5 acres that back up to Glacier Ridge Park, the four-bedroom home is being sold as-is, and includes hardwood floors throughout and a full basement. While it will probably wind up selling for more than the change in your pants pocket, it’s always fun to dream about buying a home for less than the price of a cheeseburger.
For buyers with a few more zeroes in their budget, there are several high-end homes among our most popular places. You clicked all over an opulent beachfront mansion on Maui, a historic Beverly Hills abode being flipped by emerging Southern California real estate baron Adam Levine, and a Japanese-inspired luxury home outside Chicago that’s a work of art all its own.
For family fun in the sun, there’s a historic bungalow just five blocks from Smyrna Beach in Florida and an adorable A-frame cottage in Virginia—with its own jet-ski lift!
We can’t promise you’ll walk away as the winning bidder in Ohio, but we can promise you’ll be thrilled with all of this week’s most popular properties. Simply scroll on down…
