When we dropped back to pass you this week’s most popular homes on realtor.com®, we were sacked by this week’s winner. The Texas home of NFL superstarJ.J. Wattslammed the competition this week and wrapped up our highest honor.

Perhaps curious football fans wanted a glimpse of how an All-Pro livesor maybe they were just shocked by the relative modesty of his Houston-area home. Sure, his four-bedroom home is plush by most definitions, but it doesn’t quite match up with what we’ve come to expect from a baller. And at “only” $465,000, the place was on the market for just two weeks before heading into pending sale status.

Aside from Watt’s pad, you also clicked heavily on homes in Pennsylvania. We tallied up the page views, and four of our top 10 emanate from the ultimate swing state with 20 highly coveted electoral votes.

You also clicked on the curious cave dwelling in Missouri, a quaint charmer in Columbus, and a Dallas-area home with a Texas-size 23-car garage.

Park your car anywhere you’d like, and take a look at this week’s most popular homes for sale.

10. 2734 Zollinger Rd, Columbus, OH

Price: $284,900
Why it’s here:
 Columbus is a fixture in our monthly look at the hottest real estate markets nationwide, so it isn’t shocking to see a home in Ohio’s capital crack our list. This adorable three-bedroom home from the early 1900s has been fully renovated and awaits a buyer who will appreciate its abundant charm.

9. 304 Hastings Ave, Wallingford, PA

Price: $269,900
Why it’s here:
 It’s a charming ’40s Tudor with oodles of vintage appeal apparent from the curb. Inside, everything’s been updated for a modern buyer. With three bedrooms and 1,100 square feet, it looks like a perfect starter home for a Philadelphian.

8. 474 Kralltown Rd, Wellsville, PA

Price: $274,900
Why it’s here:
 This beautiful brick Victorian from the 1870s is also a bargain at only $110 per square foot. The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated, but the original wood flooring remains. And it’s more than just a historic home, because a buyer will also get a huge garage and chicken coop. BYO chickens!

7. 49 W 306 Hinckley Rd, Big Rock, IL

Price: $529,000
Why it’s here:
 Set on 4 acres, this rural home boasts bathrooms with designer looks and five spacious bedrooms. We’re in love with the enormous back deck, which looks like the perfect place for an early autumn cookout.

6. 117 Ruffsdale Rd, Ruffs Dale, PA

Price: $195,000
Why it’s here:
 We’re not sure when this Western Pennsylvania home was built, but judging by the wood paneling, carpet, and wallpaper, we’ll guess it was the ’70s.

5. 487 S Creek Rd, West Chester, PA

Price: $550,000
Why it’s here:
 Located in the Philly suburbs, this four-bedroom home has a bucolic charm that appeals to buyers looking to escape the city. There’s also a big backyard with a sweet-looking pool. What’s not to love?

4. Undisclosed address, Festus, MO

Price: $349,900
Why it’s here:
 It’s the cave house, now in the top five for the third straight week. We’re just waiting for a brave buyer who can stomach living among the stalagmites.

3. 3415 Hales Ranch Rd, Cheyenne, WY

Price: $379,900
Why it’s here:
 Only 10 years old, this split-level ranch on 5 acres of land offers plenty of space to spread out. With Cheyenne’s median price per square foot hovering at $88, buying this four-bedroom home will be a bit of a splurge—it’s $102 per square foot.

2. 19 Maxwell Ln, Murphy, TX

Price: $2,300,000
Why it’s here:
 On the outskirts of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, this four-bedroom estate has a couple of features worth noting. There’s a glamorous boutique-style walk-in closet measuring over 600 square feet. If clothes aren’t your bag, perhaps you’ll be interested in the enormous garage—which could house 23 of your favorite rides.


Image title

1. 12324 Bend Creek Ln, Pearland, TX

Price: $465,000
Why it’s here:
 It’s J.J. Watt‘s house! The Houston Texans‘ star put his Pearland home on the market just over two weeks ago. Modest for a player of Watt’s All-Pro stature, the four-bedroom home with a “backyard oasis” is already in pending status. Will Watt leave behind a Papa John’s pizza coupon for the buyers? Stay tuned.
