Sometimes people wonder why million dollar homes cost so much. Most homes cost between $150,000 and $250,000, so what could possibly be going into a home to make it cost so much? Are the driveways paved with gold? Probably not, but many of the amenities that are considered commonplace in a mansion can quickly add up.
Many of these homes have lots of space on large beautiful tracts of land. If they are in popular neighborhoods, the land price itself could be quite steep. These homes usually have many bedrooms and they can be quite large, with walk-in closets large enough to be their own bedroom. Getting clean takes space too with master bathrooms that have double sinks, whirlpool baths, a shower room, a separate room for the toilet, maybe a television, even a fireplace for that romantic glow during a long soak. While modest homes have some of these amenities, in mansions, the space is larger and the fixtures and counters more opulent. Then there are just more bathrooms in the whole house.
Other things that cause the mansion to cost more happen in the large kitchen usually filled with commercial equipment and options like a wine cellar, and an outdoor barbeque, and you see how it grows. As the house gets bigger, they usually have a complicated roofline. So when the roof starts leaking, and you call a roofer for a price on a roof replacement, you’ll find that million dollar homes can be expensive roofs to replace.
