I was checking out the Forbes list of the most expensive residential real estate in the U.S. this morning. I’m not really shopping for a new home but it’s sometimes fun just to see how the other .00001% of the population lives.
Currently, the most expensive home in the United States (listed since the Forbes list was released) is available for a whopping $135,000,000. My mortgage calculator doesn’t accept prices over $100,000,000 so I had to figure this one by hand, so please, don’t quote me on this. The last thing I need is to be chipping in for the monthly payments on your new estate. With only $33,750,000 down and monthly payments of $587,250 per month (not including taxes) this one could be yours.
Hala Ranch is a 95 acre estate tucked in the mountains of Aspen, Colorado. Owned by Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., it boasts a 56,000 square foot mansion with 15 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms. It’s listed with Joshua Saslove at Joshua & Co.
Just a touch out of your price range? Hey, I understand. Perhaps this property (no longer available) located in Palm Beach Florida and owned by Donald Trump fits the budget a little better. This lovely home offers a ballroom, conservatory, a 100-foot swimming pool and 475 of Florida ocean front. It’s a steal at only $125,000,000. The property is listed with Dolly Lenz and Geoff Thomas at Prudential Douglas Elliman.
Dolly Lenz is reportedly the number 1 REALTOR® in North America. Her dollar volume of listed properties far exceeds what I’ll sell in a lifetime, perhaps two lifetimes. I’m sure she doesn’t need any advice from me. I’ve been on a bit of a rant lately about the value of decent photographs both in quantity and quality so I couldn’t help but notice what a poor presentation the Trump property gets online. I mean, two photos and practically no information whatsoever.
If I were “the Donald,” I think I’d be saying, “you’re fired!”
