When normal people look for a home or apartment they check out sites like Craigslist and ApartmentFinder. Non-celebrities look for homes and condos located near the right school system, with updated appliances, or at the very least, a functioning door lock. When celebrities need to find a new home or apartment they contact the top brokers in the business and spare no expense when it comes to finding high quality and high price real estate. For many celebrities and millionaires, it’s not just about the home, but about the street as well, they want to make sure their address turns heads. The following streets are the most expensive per square meter in the world:
