Channel your inner rock star with this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®. An adorable pink house in Texas is a chart-topper in more ways than one.
Built in 1937, it’s the home of musicians Max Bemis and Sherri Dupree Bemis (of the cult bands Say Anything and Eisley), and quite a few iconic indie rock albums have been recorded within its colorful walls.
The couple announced on social media that they’re moving on, and hope a fan might take up the legacy of the rockin’ house. Their post unleashed waves of positive feedback and resulted in the home’s snagging tens of thousands of clicks.
This week’s runner-up is a castle fit for a queen and king in West Virginia. It was built in 1886 and completely renovated, and aspiring royalty can take over the regal abode for $1.65 million.
Other harmonious homes piquing your interest this week include a storybook home in Pennsylvania, an Ohio mansion complete with its own tunnel, and the former fallout shelter still awaiting a buyer in Arkansas.

Berkeley Springs, WV
Price: $179,900 Why it’s here: Live like a rock star in the pink house owned by Max Bemis and Sherri Dupree Bemis. Fans of the couple’s cult bands Say Anything and Eisley—as well as their joint effort Perma—have been peeking at the indie rock digs.
Our home is on the market. Here’s to a new chapter! We love our home but there are a few we’re looking at that fit our (crazily) evolving life and we’re ready to dive in. We want someone… https://t.co/cAQrm2rG3a — Sherri DuPree Bemis (@SDuPreeBemis) September 1, 2018
Sherri and her husband have decided to downsize from their current crib, which they bought in 2011. Along with selling their house, the duo have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their next musical pursuits, which would allow them to spend more time with their three kids, and less time touring on the road. “We’re looking to dramatically downscale/simplify our lives so that we can spend our time writing/ recording/releasing music but still be able to support our family, ya know?” Sherri posted on Twitter.
“They want something a little bit smaller, a single story to focus on their art,” says listing agent John Wampler. “In their perfect world, they would love for their fans to take over the legacy of the house.”
The rose-colored home has three beds, 2.5 baths, 2,346 square feet, a garage converted into a recording studio (the birthplace of many albums), a cozy kitchen, and large living spaces. And, for a music fan, some serious bragging rights.
