FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A massive home in Florida is on the market for $139 million, which makes it the most expensive home currently on the market in the U.S.

“Le Palais Royal” was recently listed by Coldwell Banker Previews International property specialist William P.D. Pierce in Miami. The $139 million asking price makes the home the most expensive residence on the market, according to the official Coldwell Banker blog.
