When people think luxury & riches, opulent lifestyle they also have in mind that wealthy person living in a cool, giant & extravagant house. Our team put together this showcasing the current top 10 most expensive houses despite the fact that there are dozens of other Top 10 most expensive Houses. We don't claim to have the best one out there but we certainly tried to make it that way.
Although there were some incredibly expensive penthouses that might just made it onto this list we decided to look only at how's it so what makes the following homes the most expensive houses of the world, it has to do with the following things.

1) The most expensive elements factor, how much someone's willing to pay for it.
2) Cost of surrounding real estate properties adjusted to the size and living space the property has to offer.
3) Cost of putting the house together, interior and exteriors design along with extra features that might be in place.

4) Historical value that gives the place intangible value very similar to how the house can sell for millions more just because the celebrity live there.

White House, estimated at three hundred and twenty million dollars standing strong in the fourth position we have the white house. We all know it and according to real estate companies the property would be valued at three hundred twenty million, three hundred sixty four thousand three hundred and fifty-four dollars, if it would ever take the market. This is very unlikely since it's been used as the Presidential House since the eighteen hundreds although the place is not as big or luxurious as the ones it comes, it's certainly has plenty of historical value for the expected price. Something you might not know is in the White House is actually owned by the National Park service and that is exempt from mortgage or property taxes. 

3) VILLA LEOPOLDA ($ 736 Million)

Villa Leapolda, estimated at seven hundred thirty six million dollars, well that escalated quickly the first property in our ranking to go over the five hundred million dollar mark it so happens to be the most expensive mansion on the continent probably the most expensive villa in Europe.

2) ANTILLA ($ 1 Billion)

Antilla, an estimated at one billion dollars, in many rankings we have it listed as the most expensive home in the world and what the price tag of one billion it came really close to getting the title in our top ten list also believe it or not this twenty seventh floor tower is the single residence built for the Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani. It took almost five percent of his net worth to be completed over six hundred people are currently employed in order to function on the day to day basis and we have to say that place is incredible. Antilla has as a special place on this list because it should be ranked as most expensive house the world and if we did look at the term house so literally you'll see why next.

1) THE BUCKKINGHAM PALACE ($ 1.56 Billion)

The Buckingham Palace worth one point five six billion dollars, the most expensive house in the world is the Buckingham Palace valued at over one point five billion we know it's not your average of real estate properties, but we had to take it into account when concluding our top ten same as the White House, it serves as administrative purposes but the place was once used to be the sole residents of some might say the most influential family in the world. With incredible historical value the Buckingham Palace is valued an astonishing of one point five six billion if it were ever to be listed on the market, the property is currently owned by the British Sovereign. 

We couldn't really include other big buildings because of the initial criteria we set up before we started.
