A San Francisco Bay Area bungalow up for auction with a starting bid of $99,000—yes, you read that figure correctly—was this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®. And when we say there’s nothing in the Bay Area available for less than six figures, we mean it. Nothing.

So we understand exactly why the home with an “amazingly low auction reserve starting bid” attracted an outsize amount of interest.

The sheer novelty of seeing a home with a list price under 100 grand in the Bay Area was enough to command a cascade of clicks. We have to admit even we did a triple take when we first saw this listing.

For dreamers hoping to snag a post–Black Friday bargain, we do have sad news. The live auction was held over one week ago and ended with a final bid of $536,000. For context, the median listing price for homes in Hayward is currently running at $629,000.


Here are some of San Francisco’s landmarks that you’ll never see again. Which one was your favorite? Which one’s do you miss the most?

Other listings that merit a second look include a charming registered landmark in Illinois, which sailed into the No. 2 spot. Built in 1870 by one of Rock Island’s oldest families, this just-completed remodel can be snagged for the low, low price of $87,900.

On the other end of the pricing scale, we’ll highlight Seafair, a stunning, multimillion-dollar mansion in Newport, RI, which finally sold for $13.5 million to none other than comedian Jay Leno.

While that beauty is now off the market, there are plenty more popular homes still up for sale. Simply scroll down to see them all.

1. 763 Beryl Pl, Hayward, CA

Price: Auction (starting bid $99,000)
Why it’s here: Don’t get too excited. This renovated Bay Area bungalow wound up selling for way higher than the opening bid. The five-figure opening price snagged attention on the web, and the winning bidder wound up closing the deal for $536,000.

Located in the East Bay and built in 1953, the newly remodeled three-bedroom features an open layout, sunroom with french doors to the backyard, and one-car garage. While it’s just over 1,000 square feet, bidders weren’t daunted by its petite dimensions.

The company that ran the live online auction, homly.co, was satisfied with the outcome. ”It created a ton of traffic and a ton of activity,” says Manuel Rueda, the company president.

Of course, an auction requires the seller to stomach a certain amount of risk—the home could have gone for $99,000 if bidders opted out. Rueda told us the low reserve served a purpose and the desirable property drummed up multiple offers quickly.
