When it comes to buying a property, the number one factor never changes; location, location, location. With that in mind, it's no surprise that this list of the world's most expensive homes features some of the planet's most elite postcodes. 

London, Côte d'Azur and Los Angeles all make the cut to little surprise. The one obvious exception from the hot locations theme however is the $1 billion, towering Antilia owned by Mukesh Ambani in Mumbai - a home that has attracted as much controversy as it has admiration.
