Zillow, Zillow on the wall, who’s the weirdest of ‘em all? Welcome to the bizarre corner of a holy database that brings more than 110M US homes for sale, for rent, and for your eyerolls. ‘Cause some of them take craziness to a whole new level with things like a mushroom house unit that makes you wonder what on earth the architect was smoking, or a house that has so many windows, it’s basically one giant window, no questions asked.
And there’s an Instagram account loved by 1 million followers that collects the best of the bottom worst houses, objects, and architectural wonders found on Zillow. Welcome to “Zillow Gone Wild,” the internet’s home of no taste and abundance of money.
So let’s see how the rich got their houses sorted in what’s probably one of the most miscellaneous collections out there. Psst! More Zillow Gone Wild content can be found in our previous post right here.

Previously, we talked to the creator behind the internet-famous “Zillow Gone Wild” Instagram page, who preferred to stay anonymous. The idea for the account came after they spotted too many crazy houses being featured on Zillow. The Instagrammer said it was things “like homes with bowling alleys, indoor pools, jail cells, and one particular home had a mining shaft,” that caught their eye and took the listing craziness to new heights.

According to the author of “Zillow Gone Wild,” these out-of-the-box house designs are the product of people with a “combination of taste and money.” The Instagrammer also noted that in rural areas, listings go for lower prices and it seems that it’s “more feasible to do different things too. But it seems like the more eclectic the object is, the harder it should be to sell it.” They also confessed to being honestly surprised at “how many people have built actual castles and how many insanely large mansions there are in places like Utah and Ohio.”
