The Sky's the Limit!

Last week, I wrote about the many great deals out there right now, especially for homes in the $500,000-$600,000 range. But what if you aren't looking for a deal? Perhaps you want to spend as much money as possible.

So, what is the most expensive home in the East Bay? Well, there is currently a 6 bedroom / 5.5 bath home listed for sale in Danville's exclusive Blackhawk neighborhood for $12 million dollars. It even has ponds and waterfalls, plus an office for the caretaker. And, perhaps there is a deal to be had! The monthly HOA dues are only $137. Not bad! But if that is too rich for your blood, there are over a dozen other properties listed in the East Bay in the $5-10 million range.

But the East Bay is no match for down south. The great Bay Area real estate blog Curbed SF points us to the most expensive home in the nation. For only $165 million, you can get the Beverly Hills estate that once belonged to William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies (JFK and Jackie honeymooned there, too!). The property includes 29 bedrooms in four separate houses, one apartment and one cottage.

Who says the real estate market is wobbly?
