Owning a successful business is a sure-fire way to get yourself a beautiful home. But It would take a lot of success to afford these properties
Ever wondered what house you could afford to buy if you were a billionaire?
Many believe the most expensive house in the world is Buckingham Palace, valued at just under £1 billion. However, the official London residence of the British monarch is trumped by Ukranian oligarch Elena Franchuk in a list compiled by CompareCamp.com.
The value of Franchuk’s humble abode – also in London – exceeds the Queen’s palace by a couple of hundred thousand pounds.
CompareCamp.com researched the world’s most expensive residences and who owns them – and presented them in a handy infographic.
So if you are wondering what it takes to own the world’s most ridiculously expensive real estate, take a look at this list.
As well as royalty, the list also includes billionaires from the worlds of business, media, investment, industry, and, of course, real estate.
