U.S. housing markets are hot again after a slump. But mega-mansion prices have been on an upward trajectory for awhile."Over the course of the last few years, we have seen a definite shift higher in pricing at the very top of the market," said Rick Goodman, publisher of Ultimate Homes.
"Billionaires -- from the U.S., China, Russia and elsewhere -- are buying real estate in this country, and those with trophy properties to sell are feeling more bullish about asking prices than ever before." It's no surprise, then, that a property just hit the market with the highest asking price in U.S. history: Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, Conn., was listed for a whopping $190 million.

Properties listed as farm or ranchland were excluded.
