Historically, the measure of a person’s wealth was how much land they had. Today, bank accounts and stock portfolios tend to be more concise metrics through which we can determine net worth, but property is still a wildly valuable commodity, especially depending on its location. Selling a half-acre plot of land near New York City, for example, could put the kids through college. Selling a half acre in northern Idaho might buy you a very nice sandwich. If you can get your greedy hands on one of these little patches of terra firma, however, you’ll probably be naming colleges and eating caviar.

The New England Patriots have the most expensive ticket prices in the entire NFL, with their average ticket selling for just less than $250 dollars. Given that Gillette Stadium regularly sees attendance of more than 68,000 fans, that is, oh let’s see, $17 million bucks a game, just for people to have a place to put their butts.

To spend one night in the Royal Penthouse Suite of the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland, you would have to pay a good deal more than most American’s annual salaries. In fact, in some markets you could buy a (rather small and awful, admittedly) house for what it costs to spend the night in this suite: $65,000 … for one night. Yeah.

That’s the sticker price for this Dallas, TX mega-mansion. How mega is mega, you ask? Try 42,500 square feet. The home’s square footage is higher than most people’s annual income! No wonder its residents own multiple professional sports teams, among other nice things.
