What does your home say about you?

A social media creator has garnered over 714,000 followers on TikTok and 51,000 followers on Instagram for sharing some arguably outrageous homes available for sale on Zillow — an American tech real-estate marketplace headquartered in Seattle, Washington.

In 2020, Jessica More, a 35-year-old communications manager from Pennsylvania, was looking for ways to spruce up her home during the pandemic. She began checking out available listings on Zillow, she told Fox News Digital.

More remembers a time when social media users started sharing their unique internet finds in the midst of COVID-19.

"All of us collectively found this thing to fill our gap of exciting things happening in our lives," More said.

She owns the TikTok and Instagram accounts @Zillowtastrophes.

"If you found something crazy, it was like hitting the jackpot … and you wanted to share it with other people," she added.

As someone who works with social media professionally, More saw TikTok as the next big thing and used her newfound hobby to explore the once-new platform, she said.

She first started sending her Zillow discoveries to her friends, she said, and then expanded it by creating @Zillowtastrophes.
