Atlanta: $3.5 million

From the outside, it looks like your typical suburban house.

But, like the film family it hosted in "The Blind Side," it's only when you see what's on the inside that you realize it's anything but average.

With this house, it's the size that will surprise you. It clocks in at an impressive 11,000 square feet -- enough room for a cast and crew to turn it into a sound stage for six weeks.

But that distinctive stairway -- "the one that Sandra Bullock walks down so many times " -- and the kitchen and family room area are instantly recognizable, she says.

The one item serious potential buyers take away from their tour? "I give them a copy of the movie," Shay says.
