It’s appropriate that this week’s most popular home on realtor.com® hails from Hawaii. It’s vacation time around the nation—and the islands are the perfect place to spend a break from the grind of everyday life.

And we know you love to click on dreamy properties—but could you live in Hawaii year-round? Well, this popular property in Hanalei would make it quite easy, if you have nearly $14 million to spare. The cool compound on Kauai’s north shore offers two separate houses to please most buyers. When you do the math, it’s only $7 million per house. A relative bargain to walk the sands of Hanalei Bay each morning!

Back on the mainland, you also clicked on homes owned by notable figures in the world of sports, an old gristmill in Pennsylvania, a couple of log cabins, and a converted firehouse.

Scroll down, because we’re ready to fan the flames on this week’s most-clicked homes.

Create a Plan for Maximizing Your Investment

Strong economic indicators along with greater demand are two extremely important factors to look for when deciding to build your luxury home—whether you’re buying it for your personal use or strictly as an investment.

Why?

Because if and when you decide to sell your property, you want to be in a place where there is enough demand to be able to secure a premium price and return on your investment. Right now, Los Angeles is one of the few places in the country where these conditions exist in a strong enough fashion to lend confidence to smart building projects.

In fact, Los Angeles has taken its place in the list of “The Top 10 Booming Markets for Real Estate Development” across the country and comes in at number 9 in Moneywatch’s Top 10 Luxury Real Estate Markets around the world.
