The largest and most expensive homes in Los Angeles County and in the United States are in Beverly Hills. These homes range from really large and luxurious, to more common and modern homes, and then to smaller homes with less than 3,000 square feet (280 m2), which is still quite large.

In 2007, Coldwell Banker lists Beverly Hills as having the most expensive houses. The houses in Beverly Hills cost a lot. They can cost over 2 million dollars.[source?] However the houses are large, spacious, and fancy and that is why a lot of celebrities live there, and also because it is close to Hollywood.
