Throwback Thursday Tidbit

Happy Thursday everyone! Every Thursday we sit set out to share a tidbit of real estate history with you. Do you know an interesting event, obscure real estate law, or funny real estate story that you’d like to see featured in our series? Then email Jennie with your contribution at jsherkness@kw.com.

Today’s Throwback Thursday Tidbit:

2008: Construction begins on the world’s second most expensive residential property (second to Buckingham Palace) – The Ambani residence. Located in Mumbai, India, this house (can we really call it that?) has a value of $1 billion. With 27 floors, 400,000 square feet, six parking floors, nine elevators, home theater, ballroom, ice room (literally a room where it snows), dance studio, swimming pool, three helipads, and a staff of 600, this seems more like a theme park than a house to us. But can you imagine the commission on that sale?!
