To virtually view luxury mansions for sale, visit a luxury real estate website such as Southeby's Realty or Strutt & Parker. To see luxury mansions in person, contact a real estate agent who specializes in luxury properties, and ask him to show some available properties, advises Business Insider.
Sites such as Southeby's Realty and Strutt & Parker have search engines that allow interested people to define which type of luxury property they wish to view. Southeby's, for example, allows visitors to its website to search properties based on zip code, value, property type and other criteria.
Luxury mansions are just one type of luxury real estate. Other types of luxury real estate include commercial properties, small single-family homes, apartments and other properties that cost over $2.95 million, according to Forbes. As of 2013, when the price of some of New York City's most appealing luxury properties are broken down based on their size, these luxury apartments cost as much as $7,000 to $12,000 per square foot.
When viewing luxury mansions or other luxury properties, buyers should look for unobstructed views, natural light, high ceilings, a practical layout and unique architectural features, explains Forbes. They should avoid paying extra for unnecessary features such as Zen parks or outdoor showers.
