Do you fancy buying the home of a sporting legend?

by Michele Carby | | Citizenship & Residency , Property Investment

What does the home of a sporting legend look like? Michele takes a fun peek at the homes of three American sporting legends.

Obviously, at $20million these properties are not for everyone!

In fact, you need to be in the ultra high net worth bracket even to consider adding them to your new home shortlist. However, they are both on the books of top US realtor, Dustin Klath who will be one of my guests in my upcoming webinar, Living the American Dream and many of us like to have a sneaky peek into how the super-rich live so why not take a look around.

Before we do just a plug for that webinar, on June 22, it is for anyone looking to live, work, study or own property in the United States. A panel of expert guest will join me to discuss how to maximise opportunities in America. You can register here.

Now onto the houses and it any of you have $20 million or so in spare change for a new home, do get in touch
