Here is a collection of some wine cellars from homes that we’ve posted about. Wine cellars are quite common nowadays in multi-million dollar homes; it used to be a rare amenity. Most of them are located in the lower level of the home, while others are located on the 1st floor (sometimes even off of the kitchen). Some are contemporary/modern looking while others look like old world Tuscany. A new trend is also to have an adjoining tasting room! Either way you put it, wine cellars are a great feature to have in your home; especially for those of you who are wine connoisseurs!

Britney Spears Sells Home For Huge Price -- Will Move in With Fiance Jason Trawick

According to TMZ

Britney Spears Sells Home For Huge Price -- Will Move in With Fiance Jason Trawick

about a minute ago by TMZ Staff

0329_sold_britney_house_ex_3
Britney Spears has sold her Beverly Hills estate ... TMZ has learned, but that's not the big thing.  Get this ... it was listed at $2,995,000 and real estate sources tell us it sold for $4,253,000.

We're told Britney's people listed the house at a modest price, expecting multiple bids and possibly even a bidding frenzy.  It looks like it worked out for them, because the price they accepted is more than a million over asking.

And it gets better ... because Britney is under a conservatorship in probate court, there will be a hearing on the sale next month, and anyone can come to court and overbid the accepted offer. 

The house is in the Summit, an exclusive gated community -- and it's the house where Brit famously had a meltdown in 2008 ... when she was strapped to a stretcher and taken to a hospital.

0329_bspears_x17As for where Brit will be moving ... real estate sources tell us she and fiance Jason Trawick will be renting a house for the short term, until they find something they want to buy.

Jamie McCourt Wants $30 Million Profit on Holmby Hills House.

Jamie McCourt Wants $30 Million Profit on Holmby Hills House

Thursday, March 29, 2012, by Adrian Glick Kudler

2012.03_mccourt.jpg

Just two days post-Dodgers sale, the Real Estalker hears that former co-owner Jamie McCourt may have pocket listed her Holmby Hills house for $65 million. Jamie got all of the real estate in her divorce from husband Frank McCourt (he got the team) and the rumor was that she was staying at the family's two Malibu houses while swimming frequently in Holmby Hills--the woman loves to swim. (Those beach houses include a very gorgeous John Lautner design, by the way.) The McCourts bought the Holmby Hills house in 2004 for $21.25 million; it has a kitchen that came from the McCourts' old house in Brookline, MA, an Olympic-sized indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a gym, a sauna, a massage room, and a dance studio. According to the divorce papers, the McCourts put about $14 million into the house, so really Jamie only wants about a $30 million profit, no big deal. She already sold her neighboring Holmby Hills house last fall for $6.525 million.

The Most Expensive Real-Estate in the World is in Monaco. The Wealth Report - WSJ

By Robert Frank

Associated Press
Monaco

If you think real-estate in Manhattan or San Francisco is expensive, consider Monaco.

The price of real-estate in Monaco — the world’s most expensive locale — is now an average of $5,408 a square foot, according to a report from Citi Private Bank and Knight Frank, the London real-estate firm. Spending $1 million will get you a 200 square-foot closet – presumably without a water view.

The second most expensive locale is Cap Ferrat in the south of France, at more than $4,800 a square foot. That’s followed by London, at $4,534 a square foot, and then by Hong Kong, at $4,406 a square foot.

New York is a relative bargain, coming in at number 17, at more  than $2,161 a square foot (this seems to be a little  high, even for Manhattan). The only other U.S. locations on the top 50 are Aspen, at number 39, with $974 a square foot, followed by Telluride ($760 a square foot) and Miami, at about $580 a square foot.

Here is the list of the Top 10

LOCATION    AVG PRICE PSF

Monaco – $5,408

Cap Ferrat — $4,800

London — $4,534

Hong Kong (houses) — $4,406

Courcheval 1850 — $4,081

St. Moritz — $3,951

Gstaad — $3,701

St. Tropez — $3,600

Geneva  – $2,959

Hong Kong (apartments) — $2,625

EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of the chart contained incorrect dollar conversions.

No surprise here, Monaco is one of the most luxurious little jewel boxes in the world. Spectacular hotels, unbelievable restaurants, and truly glamorous casino and all with views of the yachts and coast. A truly magical wonderland.

Foolish Money Mistakes to Avoid in Real Estate.

With April Fool’s Day rapidly approaching, what better time to discuss foolish money mistakes? We make lots of them, from budgeting errors to tax mistakes to investment blunders and everything in between.  So, let’s start with these five — as they pertain to housing:

1. Trying to time the market

Granted, some of us can’t buy a home because we don’t have good credit and can’t get financing. Many others, though, are stubbornly waiting for prices to drop further.  Timing the market, as such, is problematic because a housing bottom is only going to become apparent after the fact. Are you so risk-adverse that you’re missing the big picture here?  Home affordability is off the charts right now (Nationwide, home values are down 24% below their 2007 peak), and mortgage rates, while they have been ticking up lately (See next item.), remain at historic lows.  It’s a combination you don’t see often.

2. Fixating on home prices only

We can’t emphasize this enough: prices are just one factor in how much a home will cost per month.  Mortgage rates are the other.  While still below where they were a year ago, rates are starting to rise as the economy improves. In fact, they recently topped 4%.  That’s up from 3.88% just two weeks ago, and is the highest level since late October. Some economists say rates are likely to keep rising throughout 2012 and into 2013, so even if home prices keep dropping, higher mortgage rates could counteract that, closing your window of opportunity.

3. Not knowing your credit score

This number is readily accessible so if you’re in the market for a loan, find out where you stand! To get your FICO score (a score used by most lenders), go to myfico.com ($19.95).  Other (free) options include creditkarma.com, creditsesame.com, and quizzle.com. Or, use Zillow’s credit score estimator (free).

4. Failing to research loan options

A survey by Zillow Mortgage Marketplace shows that borrowers are spending twice as much researching a car purchase as they are home loans – five hours versus ten, respectively, even though the average cost of a home is about five times more than the average costs of a car.  Really now.

5. Overlooking savings of doing a refinance

An estimated 14 million creditworthy Americans, reluctant to refinance for any number of reasons, are overpaying their mortgages by an average of $471/month. By refinancing, these homeowners could save nearly $57,000 over 10 years. Want to see how much you could save first-hand? Try the refinance calculators on Zillow, or use the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace Android App (also available on iPhone).  The numbers will likely inspire you to take action!
