“Skinny House” in Sacramento is the most popular house of the week

Whether a skinny house was built out of spite or because it must have been stuck in oddly shaped terrain, people always seem to be fascinated by these slender structures.

So it’s no surprise that this week’s most popular house on Realtor.com® is known as “Skinny House” in Sacramento, California. While the front facade looks like any other home, the slim property measures only 8 to 12 feet deep. What he lacks in space, he makes up for in interest from onlookers and potential buyers – the $ 448,000 home is on hold for sale after just a few weeks on the market.

If slim isn’t your thing, there are a lot more popular properties to take a look at. You also clicked on Pennsylvania magazine-worthy Hortulus Farm, the $ 3.3 million Double R Ranch, and a 1970s time capsule in San Antonio.

Suffice it to say, we won’t judge you if you go back a few seconds while browsing this week’s click-worthy house buffet.
