The world's most expensive homes
Who says the real estate market is cooling off? Just this week in Beverly Hills (predictably, perhaps), the highest asking price ever was set for a home newly on the market -- formerly the LA residence of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst (that's right, Citizen Kane himself). Boasting 29 bedrooms, three swimming pools, tennis courts, its own movie theater and a nightclub, the six acre estate is going for $165 million. It joins the upper echelon of an elite club of uber-expensive homes around the world, including Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar's ranch compound in Aspen, going for $135 million (no takers yet).
