>> under $400,000. barbara, good morning.
>> good morning, al. you're in a happy mood.
>> i am. it's friday. this is a house that almost looks like it's out of a movie.
>> people are going to love this style of house . like an italiano queen ann type house , either love it and or think it's spooky. no in between.
>> you rang.
>> not one of those customers. a central foyer once you get inside.
>> like a museum.
>> like living in a mousse i am honestly and you've got to love it.
>> look at the table in the middle. where did they find that? let's move out of that foyer, and still gets spooky in the other part of the house . there's the west parlor, still has its old original victorian wallpaper, still on the walls, for over 100 years, hasn't been touched, and the chairs, i don't think you get comfortable in there.
>> colonel mustard with the pipe in the library.
>> the only comfortable couch in the house . look at that.
>> look at the woodwork. hasn't been touched.
>> that's what people pay for in a house like this. the bedroom, feel victorian sleeping in that bed. look at that place, it's huge and sunny, if only they pulled back the curtains. this house is a winner and really needs new furniture.
>> austin, texas, hot neighborhood. listed for 399,8.
>> keep austin weird , and when you have a look at this house , they are doing their fair job.
>> looks like half a house .
>> imagine landing in a parachute on the top of that roof, ouch, and when you get inside you're going to love this house . anybody can move in and be happy. the interior is white and airy, stained concrete floors and look at the clever windows, filled with light, but totally prif. hard to pull that off in a house . the open kitchen with a five-burner gas range and stove, entirely tasteful. just the right size. the master bedroom is as fresh with clean lines. you'll see it here as the rest of the house . when a lovely room. look at the windows, how creative that is, and the master bath probably has the longest counter i've ever seen. pass the toothpaste, please, can you imagine being on the long counter, a great house and only 389.
>> let's head to the home in springfield, missouri, home just under $400,000 and on a big plot of land.
>> big plot of land. it comes with 15 acres, and all for a very low tax. in fact, i forgot to wright down the tax b.e.t. taxes were shocking. peaks and valleys and rooms and hoods and everything. it's the kind of house people are willing to pay $1 million for but in missouri it's 399. custom built inside, charming inside and out. love the detailed trim and windows. looks really right out of house beautiful . when you see the kitchen, all the bells and whistles here. what a lovely home. the big sunny breakfast room is bigger than my dining room . that's a breakfast room, not even counting the dining room , and the master bedroom has its own fireplace and a big ole four-poster bed which probably has to come with the house because how would they be able to move that thing out.
>> i want to skip to the very last one because it's just kind of cool. redmond,or, you got it, 735,000, a log cabin feel
>> i love this house . very different. it's in redmond which is 3,000 feet above sea level , high desert and river canyons, and every guy's dream of what he really wants but never gets to have because the wives usually doenl like it. six acres surrounded by wide-open land. the only thing lacking there are the horses, but it also has a two-stall barn, a tack room on the property and two corrals, the living room with tongue and groove ceilings, gorgeous. can you see the snow outside on this house , just a perfect situation for cozying up. the kitchen is overcrowded with the center island that ought to be pulled out and then it's perfect and the master bedroom is cozy and just the right side to suit the house .
>> that is particular.
>> you ended on a big
