Most of what I know about real estate is local: home values in The Woodlands and Houston, information about neighborhoods and school districts, mortgage rates, those kinds of things. But sometimes I see something about houses around the country that I just find fascinating.


Recently, the folks at Curbed published a list of the most expensive homes in America.

The most and least expensive homes on the list are actually on the same street - there’s a $120 million difference between them!

Some of the amenities include: private ocean access, a life size chess set, a view of the Statue of Liberty, bowling alleys, basketball courts, helicopter landing pads, private spas, makeup refrigerators, movie theatres, even season tickets to the Brooklyn Nets!

If these homes have you thinking about what Houston and The Woodlands most expensive homes are, here’s a list:  The most expensive homes in Houston.
