In light of the recent influx of unreasonably expensive residences hitting the market—including a $139M monster in South Florida and a $125M stunner in Montecito, California—it seemed appropriate to update the index of most expensive houses listed right this very second. The qualifications: each property had to be on the open market—so The Manor in L.A., which heiress Petra Ecclestone is very quietly maybe looking to sell for $150M, doesn't count—and had to include a main house of some sort. Sorry giant residential landmasses, you're not welcome here.
Looking for the most expensive houses in specific cities? Well, we've got that too.
