Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Houses.com, a leading global property portal, is quickly becoming a top source to view celebrity homes for sale or rent. Houses.com has recently expanded its content to include all recent news on celebrity home listings of A-list actors, musicians and athletes. Those interested in getting a glimpse of the lifestyles of the rich and famous can now access and subscribe to Houses.com’s “celebrity real estate news” with articles posted regularly on the site’s homepage.

The celebrity and luxury real estate market has taken flight in recent months with dozens of the most expensive, high-profile homes being listed. Celebrity listings have the unique advantage of being famous, an intangible feature adding significant value over other luxury homes. Buyers can often justify the hefty price tag on a former celeb home over another home with even more amenities. These celebrity, famous million-dollar mansions, dubbed “Houses of the Rich and Famous” represent some of the most extravagant, sought after homes in real estate nationwide. Most notably, the Spelling Manor originally built by Aaron Spelling, is the most expensive home listed on Houses.com and one of the most expensive properties for sale in the world. Currently listed at $150 million, the 14-bedroom, 56,500 square foot Los Angeles mansion sits on 4.7 acres of land in Holmby Hills. The Spelling Manor was featured in the site’s recent article: “The Best of the Best: Houses.com’s 5 Most Expensive Listings.”
