The 33 Most Expensive Homes in the World

And you thought your local housing market was expensive. ABC News offers some perspective with their slideshow of the 33 most expensive homes in the world. I would have thought the most expensive home would be Bill Gates’s, but it’s not even close. The number one slot belongs to the 20-acre estate on the French Riviera that recently sold for $740 million. Whoa! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s home isn’t too bad either. Although I like the home with the 12-car garage. That will come in handy when I pick up another 11 vehicles. The rich lead much different lives than you and I.
