Top 3 List - Most Expensive Homes

In my "Top 3 List", I hope to provide a list of some of the finer things in life. I truly hope that one day, all us traders will one day make it and when we do make it, the costs of some of these items can no longer be an issue. My "Top 3 List" serves only as a motivator and is mainly just for fun.

You may have noticed that last week I missed posting a Top 3 list. What I intend to do is post up a Top 3 list whenever one is ready...thus this list may start coming irregularly (in short, it just depends on how much time I have to put one together!).
