Most expensive houses in the world – Recently, we did a list of the most expensive celebrity cars ever, saying that cars were a good indicator of personal wealth. Another such indicator, perhaps more than anything else, is the home a person lives in (or, in some cases, just keeps in the background because they can afford to have several.)

The general rule is: the bigger the house, the bigger the wallet.
The owners of these houses are some of the richest people in the world, people whose cleverness, acumen, and very hard work has gotten them more money than most of us could ever imagine – a $1,000,000 house seems impossibly extravagant in this day and age!
But big doesn’t always mean tasteful (re: Flo Rida’s $1.7 million GOLD Bugatti Veyron, which someone called, “Like putting a moustache on the Mona Lisa”), and some of these houses are as garish as a gilded paint job. However, some of them are beautiful, the designers and architects having created a coherent little universe where the homeowners can seek solace.
Get ready, here come the 15 most expensive homes in the world, listed in backwards order to preserve suspense.
15. Penthouse at 15 Central Park West – $45 million
People call the building at 15 Central Park West the “Limestone Jesus,” because it’s full of New York City’s most powerful and influential residents. Daniel Loeb, a very wealthy hedge fund boss, bought the apartment at the top floor in 2008, right at the beginning of the recession.
During the recession, housing prices in the United States suffered. It was a buyer’s market. In other words, Loeb bought an apartment for $45 million at a time when selling your house for more than you paid for it was a struggle. In 2012, Loeb was trying to sell the property for $100 million, just to give you an idea.
