Let’s hear it for the homes of North Dakota. An entire state with half as many homes currently on the market as the city of Los Angeles, North Dakota doesn’t get much PR for its real estate—until this week.
A time capsule gone wild sitting smack-dab in the middle of the nation’s least visited state racked up tens of thousands of clicks. Full of vibrant flooring choices and a swinging ’70s-era vibe, it’s this week’s most popular home on Realtor.com®.
It features interiors that have not changed at all since the home was built in 1976. From the Formica countertops in the kitchen to the brightly colored carpeting throughout, the listing photos for the three-bedroom home offer a step back in time and beg to be shared.
Aside from the time capsule, you also clicked on a San Francisco home immortalized in postcards, a fun and affordable beach home in North Carolina, and the Southern California mansion of former NFL linebacker Clay Matthews.
