Real Estate Junkie: Best Online Sources for Unique Homes

Are you a real estate section junkie? When a person is home-obsessed, browsing the real estate section can be frivolous fun and an exercise in virtually redecorating unknown spaces. But if a person is really just looking for fun, why not look all over the world?

Looking at unusual homes can be great fun, especially if you have a desire to live in very different digs. For example, the apartment city-dweller who yearns for acreage or the land-locked thirsting for waterfront views. It's fun to look! Below are just a few examples of some great real estate sites. What is your favorite?

1. Seattle Modern: featuring mid-century modern and contemporary modern designs in the Puget Sound region.

2. Historic Properties: Based in Savannah, Georgia, this site features historic homes all over the US and Canada.

3. Old Houses: Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, features historical properties for purchase or for rent.

4. Prime Waterfront: Like the name implies, all homes are waterfront homes in the US and Canada.

5. Unusual Homes For Sale: Based in the UK this site features an unusual assortment of homes for sale, mostly in the UK. It also lists properties in the rest of the world.

6. Special Finds: These listings are a bit harder to define. The site features properties that are hard to find: off-grid homes, one-of-a-kind properties, in the US.

7. E-Islands: This is actually a collaboration of multiple private island real estate sites. Truly worth visiting if only to dream!
