The Most Expensive U.S. Listing Is a $340 Million Work in Progress

A house vying to become the most expensive in the U.S. doesn’t even exist yet.

With an enormous $347 million asking price, an extravagant and under-construction megamansion in Los Angeles is now the most expensive home on the U.S. market.

Listed Thursday, the 7245sqm property’s nine-figure price tag surpasses that of anything else being marketed for sale on public listing portals across the country, according to records with online property database Zillow.

It dwarfs the asking price of the second most expensive property on the public market, a Manhattan penthouse asking approx. $234 million, records show. And if it sells for that price it’ll beat the record-setting sale of the $238 million Manhattan apartment bought by billionaire hedge-fund manager Ken Griffin in 2019.

The owner of the mammoth Beverly Hills trophy home is a limited liability company managed by real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, per company filings, and the multi-level home on close to 37 acres is the largest property ever permitted in the city, according to the listing with Rodrigo Iglesias and Helena Deeds of Hilton & Hyland.

“Nothing compares,” touts the listing, adding that it’s “the finest compound ever to be completed.”

Positioned on the winding streets that overlook the city and close to Franklin Canyon Park, the mansion is to be equipped with a total of 19 bedrooms and 28.5 bathrooms, the Beverly Hills compound will have an impressive catalog of high-end amenities spread over its main house and guest house.

They’ll include a bowling lane, a bar, a massage room, a wine tasting room, a cigar lounge, a wine cellar, a 36-person theatre, a Turkish bath, a pool and a pool bar, and a five-car garage with two vehicle turntables.

Construction is expected to be complete in less than 24 months, according to Forbes, which first reported the listing.

Potential buyers have the option of purchasing the home upon completion for the full $347 million, or the unfinished property can be bought when only the foundation is completed for $92 million, according to the listing.

It’s not clear how much Mr. Hadid, 72, paid to acquire the plot the home will sit on. The developer, father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid, last month appeared in court over his controversial construction of a mansion in Bel Air. He could not be reached for comment.

The surge at that very top end is being propelled largely by increased wealth, a renewed focus on and appreciation of what home is and a lack of other spending options over the past year, according to experts.

In the four months to the end of April, the $50 million-plus market was well ahead of previous years. Sellers across the country had already listed 30 ultra high-end homes at that price level and seriously deep-pocketed buyers had purchased eight, Mansion Global previously reported.

We reveal the No. 1 areas for price growth in each capital city

Home values across Australia rose by a median 8 percent in FY24, delivering the equivalent of $59,000 in new capital growth to the two-thirds of the population that owns a home, according to CoreLogic data. Investors received total returns of 12.2 percent over the year, including capital gains and gross rental income.

Very tight supply and demand in most capital cities except Melbourne and Hobart was a significant driver of the capital growth, with the smaller and more affordable capital cities of Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide experiencing the most price appreciation over the year. A lack of properties for sale trumped the usual dampening effect of higher interest rates.

As usual, some areas outperformed their city’s median growth benchmark. Here are the top SA3 areas for capital growth in each capital city of Australia in FY24. SA3 areas are large suburbs, or districts incorporating clusters of suburbs, with more than 20,000 residents.

 

Sydney

Home values across Sydney rose by a median 6.3 percent in FY24. The No. 1 area for growth was Mount Druitt. Its median value rose by 13.96 percent to $859,939. Mount Druitt is located 33km west of the CBD. It incorporates the suburbs of Mount Druitt, Ropes Crossing, Whalan and Minchinbury. The Mount Druitt community is very multicultural with almost one in two residents born overseas. It is home to many young families, with the median age of residents being 33 compared to the NSW median of 39.

One or both parents of 66 percent of residents were born overseas, according to the 2021 Census.

Home values across Brisbane rose by a median 15.8 percent in FY24. The No. 1 area for growth was Springwood-Kingston in Logan City. Its median value swelled by 25.55 percent to $710,569.
