I had imagined that the most expensive home in the world would be huge, but I also imagined that it would be built on lots of acres of land, making it very secluded. I couldn’t have been more wrong! The most expensive home in the world sits on top of a building located in Mumbai India, the 4th most populous city in the world and India’s most poverty-stricken region.
This $2,000,0000,0000 (that two billion-dollars) is a towering skyscraper called Antilia that reaches 550 feet into the heavens and has over 400,000 square feet of interior space. The reason for the huge price tag is the opulent and palatial interior. It takes a staff of 600 people to maintain the residence 24 hours a day and it’s for a family of 6.
Ok, I hate to be a miserly realtor, but I have to calculate this out. If a standard 3% commission was paid to an agent selling this place, that would be a $60,000,000. Not bad!
