Forbes searched through property records and databases to unearth some of the biggest billionaire real estate transactions of the past year. Sticking only to single-family, condo and co-op sales of the past 12 months, the world’s richest people have been off-loading properties and snatching up new ones. Most of the purchases Forbes uncovered were secondary homes and for every transaction it identified there are dozens more that remain a mystery, since rich and famous home buyers tend to conduct their residential real estate dealings behind the privacy of anonymous third-party LLCs.
