Thanks to Zephyr McIntyre for sending me the WSJ article on the sale this summer of the highest priced home in the US. The Spelling Manor a 57,000 square-foot Los Angeles mansion built by the late TV producer Aaron Spelling closed in July 2011 for $85 million, or 43% off its $150 million asking price.
Zephyr says there was a whole TV program on HD TV on selling the Spelling Manor. YouTube has a bunch of video on the history of this mansion. This is the the most viewed one. Most of the video on this home is by coverage for other than selling the home. At least the stills are respectable.
The thing that I'm puzzled by most is since LA is the movie capital of the world, the video talent there is staggering yet I have almost never seen a video for the express purpose of selling a home. Ya, these mega-mansions get coverage on HD TV and Forbes but never a video created by a agent for the purpose of selling a home. I must be missing something.
