Victory Mansion in Tampa Bay Lives Up to Its Name as This Week's Most Popular Home

January 12, 2019 | By Kurt Davidson


A deluxe waterfront property in Florida delivered on its not-so-modest moniker. The Victory Mansion lapped the field and ran away with the most clicks on realtor.com® this week. The grand estate is the most expensive home in Tampa Bay and landed on the market just over a week ago. Its grand decor, combined with a gorgeous setting, made it irresistible to housing gawkers.

This week's runner-up is the exact opposite of opulent—which is not to say that the underground dwelling isn't worth a second look. The earth-sheltered, energy-efficient home in Wisconsin will appeal to buyers in search of a whimsical, hobbit like home.

Other homes causing a commotion on the web this week include a rare (and tiny!) bargain in San Francisco, a dandy restoration project in Detroit, and a former "Fixer Upper" in Texas.

Whether or not you want to savor the sweet taste of victory, we do ask that you simply scroll down and peruse all of the week's most popular homes...
