Zillow … Redfin … Trulia … those websites are often better than porn. If you're like me and looking for a home to buy, you cruise the real estate sites harder than any dating app out there. Sometimes, just like on dating apps, you go a little bit out of your comfort zone and hit up one of the more shiny offerings.
Someone over at the Today Show must be doing the same thing. This week, in the show's HOME section, they set their sites on the $28.5 million Manhattan home of Meryl Streep. For the full listing and more pics, head over to Zillow.com .
Okay, it's actually her old home she sold in 2005 for a sale price of $9.1 million. It has changed hands a couple of times since then, and is now on the market for more than three times what she sold it for 12 years ago. Some pretty good appreciation!
