** Somewhat related to the Japanese Imperial Palace, the White House has gained a lot in the land-value department since about 2000. DC's real estate market has become rather tight, and land values are increasing quickly, so even a "moderately-large three-bedroom penthouse" is actually quite a lot in today's DC.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Imperial_Palace The residence of the Emperor of Japan]]. A palace, ''several'' Big Fancy Houses and ''several square kilometres of open parkland''. In '''central Tokyo'''. One estimate of its "market value" (if a market for it existed) is that the palace and grounds is worth, roughly, California[[note]]Although that estimate was made during the '90s Japanese real estate bubble. Probably less now. But still really expensive.[[/note]]. There are bigger, fancier palaces out there for heads of state, but none anywhere in the world on more valuable real estate than this one.

Even at sky-high Tokyo prices, it would probably cost less to buy the Imperial Palace than it would to buy, say, every lot in San Francisco. Also, that estimate was made during the '90s Japanese real estate bubble. Probably real-estate bubble, so the Imperial Palace is probably worth less now. But still really expensive.[[/note]].
