Lower home prices have hit the 7 and 8 figure listings.  The estate and penthouse markets are not impervious to the real estate price dip. Sure, buying into one of these properties still requires lots of cash but if you’ve got bank, you can get a pretty swanky deal.

We’ve selected some plum properties from across the country, all of which have seen a downward spike on the price graph. Will that be cash or charge?

1. 7030 Tomiyasu Lane, Las Vegas: The Royal Family Landmark Polo Playground (at top), formerly belonging to the Sultan of Brunei, took two rather deep price dips totalling $20,000,001 since being placed on the market in October last year.  This private compound rivals a five star hotel with resort pool, horse stables, disco/nightclub, ballroom, and his and hers spa/salons. And like most sale pricetags, the digits include nines as in $24,999,999.

Originally listed at $42.5 M, the property is currenly offered at $32.5 M.
