Franklin's housing market remains red hot.

Driving the news: Photos of fire tearing through the home’s roof did not scare buyers away. Instead, they were attracted like moths to a flame.

  • Real estate agent Paula Duvall tells Axios she was inundated with calls. She confirmed the house was under contract to Mike Thakur of Houston.

The intrigue: On Instagram, Thakur teased the development, saying he "did something a little crazy over the weekend." He filmed his family's visit to the five-acre property in a YouTube video with the straightforward title, "I Bought A Burned Down Mansion!"

  • "Join us for the journey while we rebuild this house and make it our own," he said.
  • The video encouraged folks to subscribe to his channel for updates on the restoration project.
