Mapping the 16 Most Expensive Rental Listings in America

Why buy a multimillion dollar home when you can simply pay a modest six figures a month to live there, leaving the owner to deal with the mortgage, the paperwork, the pesky upkeep? That's exactly what the recent uptick in ultra-pricey rental listings suggests—well that, and the fact that times must be really freakin' good. A year ago, the nation's priciest rental listing rang in at $250K a month, a figure that seems downright paltry when compared to today's frontrunner: a SoCal chateau asking a rather audacious $600K a month—that's more than $833 an hour, all for the right to take your shoes off upon walking through the (gilded or hand-carved, no doubt) front door. Even the Hamptons, that ever-reliable goldmine for six-figure seasonal rentals, have outdone themselves, so much so that included in the map below is only a small handful of the dozens or so listed through Sotheby's and Corcoran for $500K and above for the summer. Go on now, have a look:
