Top 10 Most Expensive Homes

1 2

A house is traditionally the most expensive purchase we ever have to make. Getting onto the property ladder is a big step especially with house prices being as high as they are these days. In fact most people struggle to attain a mortgage as the banks have largely requested much higher deposits. The average purchase price of a detached house in the UK is now £249,000 which is roughly ten times the average wage. This may seem a like a huge figure but it is nothing compared to the value of some houses.  With this in mind, we now take a look at some of the world’s most expensive homes.
