Dream Homes Around the World

Spectacular homes exist all over the globe. From Europe to Asia to North America, there are incredible homes that leave onlookers breathless. While most of us can only imagine how fabulous it would be to live in such luxury, we are all fortunate enough to be able to view these homes. Here are five of the best dream homes from around the world:


  1. The Copper House, Sentosa, Singapore: Located on an island resort off the coast of Singapore, The Copper House was designed by a feng-shui master who prescribed copper cladding for the façade and warm colors to be used in the décor. This six bedroom stunner faces Sentosa Cove, and you can watch the sunsets from the main floors.


  1. Saturnusringen, Lindingo, Sweden: This modern villa is located on an island in the inner Stockholm archipelago 20 minutes from downtown. Comprised of three levels with multiple patios and terraces, the glass façade offers amazing water views. A large dock with room for multiple boats, as well as nearby hiking and biking trails, caters to nature lovers.


  1. Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, Quebec, Canada: A modern and sleek ski chalet located in the Charlevoix region, this home is situated atop a cliff overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Composed of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, large panes of glass look out over the river to deliver impressive and unobstructed views.


  1. Meads Bay Beach, Anguilla: With angles and smooth lines making geometric shapes in the Caribbean sun, this private estate located on a white sandy beach is a beach lover’s dream. Eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and a 44-foot long infinity pool add to the allure. Expansive ocean and sunset views will capture the imagination of anyone looking for a tropical getaway.


  1. Wilding Road, Queenstown, New Zealand: New Zealand’s spectacular South Island is the location of this fascinating home. Concrete tilt slab walls cover the exterior, while the interior is warmed with wood sourced from around the globe. Amenities include an indoor pool with a diving board and jet system, as well as a sauna that can seat up to five people. A pond with a meditation platform completes the spa-like tranquility of the home.


While a dream home is different for each person, these homes inspire us with their beauty and individuality.

Meet the Man Who Sold Over 3000 Homes in One Year

When you think of world records, you probably think of things like growing the biggest pumpkin or dancing for the longest amount of time. However, a real estate agent recently made his way into the famed Guinness Book of World Records.

This man, Ben Caballero, went down in record-breaking history for selling the most homes in one year. The number will blow your mind. It’s not 100 or even 200. The Addison, Texas local sold a whopping 3,556 homes in just one year.

Caballero set this record back in 2016, earning $1.44 billion in addition to his new status as a record-breaker. He credits his success to choosing to work exclusively with developers, rather than individual buyers.

Caballero was excited about his success, but it didn’t come as a surprise to him. Not only did he develop a foolproof plan of using a multiple listing service through which he could honor home requests quite quickly, but he looked into the Guinness process himself. At the time, he thought he might already have set a world record. When he found out how the process worked, he jumped right in, filling out paperwork and more so that he could get his name entered in this famous book and his great accomplishment recorded forever.

Caballero might even go for another world record, perhaps in another state, in the near future. While the Guinness Book of World Records makes people wait at least two years before applying for a new record, that just means Caballero has plenty of time to improve his game even further and perhaps even beat his own record.

And, when Caballero isn’t busy relishing his success as a record-setter, he likes to advise other realtors and home buyers too. His best advice for homebuyers, right now, is to consider buying new homes as opposed to old ones. While he admits newer homes may be more expensive, he points out that utility costs are typically much lower with a newer home, making them a smarter long-term investment. He also points out the much longer warranties that typically come with newer homes.

From his record-winning sales to his great advice, it’s clear that Caballero is an impressive guy, as well as a real role model for real estate agents everywhere. The only question is, what record will he set next?
