It’s no secret that midcentury-modern furniture is back in vogue. But now, the era’s ranch-style and split-level homes are selling better than ever, according to Vanessa Reilly of Atlanta boutique real estate firm DOMO Realty.

Some people flip through Architectural Digest or Dwell with dreams of classic mansions or custom homes filled with designer furnishings.
