The 20 Most Expensive Homes Sold in the U.S. in 2017

11. The Pierre PH, NYC – Sold for $44 million in August 2017

First, you should know that this 3-level penthouse sold for an astounding 65% LESS than the original asking price of $125 million, almost guaranteeing that the new owner, Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, got the top real estate deal of 2017. In return, he gets a 12,000 sq. ft. penthouse that offers 360-degree views of ALL of Central Park, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a grand living room with 23’ ceilings, four spacious terraces, all of the amenities included with the hotel below, and a private elevator that stops at all three floors.

10. 432 Park Ave.84th floor, NYC – Purchased for $44.6 million on May 5, 2017

Located in the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere, this 5,421 sq. ft. penthouse was purchased by Juan Beckmann Vidal, a Mexican businessman who owns 70% of the Jose Cuervo tequila brand, after four years and quite a bit of drama. Apparently, before he closed on the property, it was flooded by up an upstairs penthouse, causing him to file a lawsuit against Harry Marklowe and CIM Group. At some point, the builder and Mr. Vidal must have worked out their differences because the sale was finalized and NYC newspapers stopped mentioning the lawsuit. There are no specific details about the penthouse available.
