There are four days left for voting in Redfin's Iconic Homes of America competition. It's a fun contest that promotes the real estate website by getting people to engage with its listings of homes for sale, including the three iconic finalists from "Philadelphia." A few of the parameters for nominations were that the homes have "cool and unique architecture," be "representative of the city's style" and be "wildly different from the other homes on the block."
The results for Philly are...odd. The three finalists are a modest Aronimink Tudor for $209,900 in Drexel Hill; a farm estate for $9.5 million in Newtown Square; and a five-bedroom stone house in Wynnewood for $735,000.
We're not trying to split hairs here, but if you're going to crown Philadelphia's most iconic home—and call it by that name—shouldn't the homes be in Philadelphia County?
