    Don’t misunderstand me, I love this mansion. It’s beautiful inside and out. But there are a few things I would want for my $95 million that are missing here. First is creativity. I want something besides size and quality – an assembly of more and bigger boxes won’t cut it – I want something very rarely seen, like a revolving room. I would also want an indoor pool, and an indoor shooting range. And prepper-survival facilities like my own secure water well, aquaponic greenhouse, bomb shelter, and so forth. I would also want a helluva lot more land, with several special purpose outbuildings (use your imagination.) Maybe a waterfront lot that also borders on an airstrip -whatever, something, anything, but just another big ol’ gorgeous house.

    Any buyer with this kind of loot is going to have to fall in love with this home as it is, with no interest in personal input, no imagination, dreams or fantasies, nothing to express beyond his preference in furnishings and artwork. That’s not like most of the kind of people with this kind of money. Seller will be lucky to close on this for 2/3 of the listing price, maybe even less.

      You are actually the reason why I think a lot of the larger mansions sit.. when you sell something that is “rarely seen” or “unique,” or over-the-top in the wrong ways.. you are limiting your buyer pool further; which is why I actually think they linger for years or don’t warrant the price.. now do I think it is a little high.. certainly, but I think that is the market right now; overpricing so the equilibrium price will show in the end; I would give this house an A-.. I would value the house at $45M and the 2.2 acres at $10M; Although land is valuable in Beverly Park; most homes are only on an acre or two.. and note to the author.. Alec Gores is worth the $2.2B his brother Tom is worth the $3.7B..

        I don’t really see how resale-value is much of a consideration in that price range. Not saying it isn’t, just saying it doesn’t make sense to me.
        If you’re spending that kind of money on a house, why wouldn’t you want something that is tailormade for your taste? It seems crazy to me to spend 8 and 9 figure amounts on a deliberately nondescript and bland house, just so you can sell it better. Why buy it in the first place then? If it is just an investment, I’d rather buy a bunch of smaller bland homes to flip. My guess is that millionaires care more about the resale value of their houses than billionaires do.

          Most billionaires I think buy in this category to stash the money; I don’t necessarily want to use the term investment; it might be just a movement of assets depending on vitality..and hopefully it retains its value or increases; or even if it loses value; it will still have a higher value than most homes in America. but I think we already made the consensus; Gores’ home is little high even for the area its in…And most billionaires have shell corporations or trusts to buy homes like this; so tax structures can be very different in business/trusts terms when there is a loss or gain on a transaction…I think I was more commenting on when billionaires go out of their way and install like very odd things.. what horseslips was mentioning ; about an indoor pool and shoot range.. and blah blah.. this is just a nicely decorated house with a lot of room in a highly coveted area.. and more than likely the buyer would actually like the decor and style of the home.. I wouldn’t pull a Kanye and Kim and buy a Mediterranean house and turn it contemporary..There probably isn’t a lot of lee-way into flipping this home; this is after we find its true selling price..

    The sheer scale of this continent sized gargantua and its wretchedly incomprehensible excess is mind blogglingly disgusting.
