Interest rates on 30-year mortgages are so low, you can't afford not to buy a $29.7 million, five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home in Nantucket, MA! The estimated mortgage payment is only $109,817 per month, after all. They're practically giving it away!
With the help of Zillow, we've compiled a rundown of the most expensive homes for sale in every state (and DC!) as of December 1st. A few caveats: we focused on homes, so apartments didn't make the cut. We're suckers for a nicely manicured lawn. And since this is all about the biggest, baddest homes, even if there's a super-expensive 250-acre plot of land with a wimpy six-bedroom house on it, we generally favored another listing with a bigger house, even if it cost less.
Estimated monthly mortgage payment: $23,994
Square feet: 9,221
Year built: 2005
Highlights: The pool house that holds the infinity swimming hole in this Alabama compound is 900sqft, which is probably bigger than your apartment. Speaking of pools, it's not often you get to go swimming next to a dolphin sculpture. If you have $6.5 million and live in Alabama, now is your chance. Some would ask, "Why not just buy a dolphin sculpture?" Those people probably think dolphins are fish.
