When it comes to the term “luxury homes" or "luxury real estate” it can mean many different things and can be very dependent upon the specific pricing of a local real estate area. One area of luxury real estate that is truly luxury all across the world, is high-profile luxury homes. The very top tier of the most expensive homes in the world. Most often these homes are purchased by A-list celebrities and elite business owners/company heads.
When it comes to “super-luxury real estate” things run a little bit different. Here are some of the real estate secrets of the world’s most luxurious homes.
Income verification may be required for a high-end luxury home
In some cases, especially when a luxury home is owned by a high-profile person, security is of the utmost concern when touring a luxury home on the market. Certain high-end luxury homes can come with a sort of gatekeeper who is very careful with who they let into the home to tour it. Unless you are already a well-known person of interest, a reference letter or bank statement can be required of you to prove you have the means to purchase the property and are a serious buyer. This helps to cut down on potential security risks at the property.
Homes are often purchased through companies to retain privacy
In the case of those who are constantly on the media radar, purchasing a new home with as little recognition as possible is a major goal. In some cases, large name buyers will purchase a luxury home set up through a trust or a limited liability company. This way they do not need to sign their name to paperwork and can keep their new address a secret from those searching public real estate records.
An increased interest in bunkers and panic rooms
Just since 2019 more and more top-end luxury home buyers are searching for properties that have their own bunker or panic room. This allows for the highest of security when expected to hunker down in one’s home. If the home does not have one of these areas,the buyer will look into the ability to add one. It is said that the rise in requests for custom-made panic rooms and bunkers has increased greatly in the last two years alone.
More and more the highest end of the luxury market buyers are seeking to make sure their privacy stays intact by separating their home from anything that surrounds it. It is not uncommon for the highest in luxury home seekers to seek out a home that is far removed from anything else around it, or to purchase surrounding land around the main structural property they are interested in to ensure that their home remains quiet and their day-to-day life goes un-spectated.
The homeowner is often the last one to actually see the property
Those at the highest level of the real estate price market often are busy and entangled with other priorities to search for a home on their own. It is not uncommon for the first initial tour of a very high-end luxury home to be conducted by the homeowner’s assistant or other hired and trusted employee. Many times, the highest end of luxury homes are not seen by the actual homebuyer until just before putting in an offer, and sometimes the home is purchased sight unseen by the person who will be living in the home.
