Trick or treat: The million-dollar home challenge
In the next round of the spooky $1 million home challenge, the Eerie Estate in New Jersey goes against a four-story townhouse in an area famous for its ghost tours.
Built in 1847, this house in Savannah, Ga., has a roof terrace that overlooks a cathedral. This 3,300-square-foot home is priced at $1,064,000 and sits on a quarter acre with a bewitching garden.
With lots of room to tell ghost stories in this three-bedroom residence, the master suite features two of the home's five fireplaces. The gourmet kitchen is fully renovated with double ovens and a wet bar. Also perfect for guests, the house includes a garden-level suite with a full kitchen and bath.
"It's a beautiful house renovated in 1995," Lenz said. "It has a guest apartment where you get income of $2,000 a month that defrays most of the cost of the house."

The ghost-friendly townhouse in Savannah, Ga. competes in the next round against a house with a mysterious past in the historic town of Salem, Mass., located on one of the most beautiful streets in the country.
This four-story Italian revival house is set on a 10,000-square-foot lawn with a lush garden. Built in 1856, this home is more than 4,000 square feet and is priced at just under a million dollars.
Crown molding tops the high ceilings in each of the four large bedrooms and the state of the art newly renovated bathrooms are all covered in luxurious marble. There is a fully renovated kitchen with wood floors and an elegant dining room. The library was restored to maintain the home's original cozy character.
"Both houses are hundred-year-old houses, both historic in beautiful condition and well maintained," commented Lenz.
"But the big difference between them is one is 30 minutes away from town," she said. "One is in town. You can walk to the art galleries, the restaurants, the pubs, everything."
The winner: Ominous Oasis
Winning the two previous rounds and hailing from the Peach State, the Ominous Oasis competes in the next round against a French provincial-style home with water views that overlooks a golf course in New Orleans.

"It's a perfect house," Lenz said. "The best part of all, it rented for $10,000 a month. You've got phenomenal exit strategies whether you sell it or keep it."

The French provincial New Orleans manor that defeated the two-time champion Italian revival house in the previous rounds is running against a beach house in an area known for its great restaurants in the final round. May the best house win.
This house sits on a 3,500-square-foot half-lot on a hilltop in San Diego. This three-level home is less than 2,000 square feet and is priced at $1 million.
All three floors have bamboo floors. The ground floor has a two-car garage with a dumbwaiter to tote all your groceries. The middle level comprises three bedrooms and two full baths. Last but not least is the kitchen on the top floor, outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances.
"We almost said it was a tie because they both rent for $10,000 a month and they're both terrific houses," said Lenz. "
"This beach house has two sets of buyers," she added. "Both the buyer for a summer house and the primary resident."
"That's a really great point," said Maria Bartiromo on "Closing Bell." "And you're right next to everything in walking distance."
