    I think when people buy or construct Mega Mansions they need to take into consideration all factors when acquiring these properties. The most important thing is “Value”! When you choose to build a property that is of your own taste and worth more than anything in that local area it is difficult to determine value, even if you are a Legend in your past Sport. This is an example of what I see time and time again. A 1 million dollar price drop is significant. Also, what other properties are there in this local market to compare this value too? Many of the prices are determined by “name recognition” instead of “Market value”.
