Five years ago, the mansion known as Palazzo di Amore was priced at $195 million, which made it the most expensive home in the United States.

Now, the 25-acre compound in Beverly Hills, CA, is back on the market for $129 million (again!), and its regal return created a whole lot of clicks. The massive mansion took the title of this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®.

Lottery lovers must be filling out their 2020 vision boards with photos of this herculean homestead, because with a nine-digit price tag, it’s the kind of place only billionaires can truly afford.

Will this renewed interest finally attract a buyer? For the richest 1% in need of 50,000 square feet of living space, it feels like it’s finally time to fall in love with Amore.

Besides Beverly Hills luxury, you also clicked on a dreamy, 25,000-square-foot desert mountain retreat in Arizona, a cute and quirky shipping container house designed for lakeside fun, and the Arkansas mansion of the recently fired Razorbacks football coach Chad Morris.

We won’t ask you to scrounge up $129 million, but we would like you to take a look at this week’s most popular homes…
