For 99.9999 percent of us, we can't even imagine what it would be like to have $100 million to spend on a house. But, according to Forbes, exclusive real estate listings in this price range are becoming, well, less rare, as the market has recently picked up for America's most expensive homes.

According to Coldwell Banker's luxury market report, many of these properties reside in the same few zip codes: New York, Beverly Hills, Aspen and Montecito, but surprisingly a few of the country's highest priced abodes are in less conspicuous locations, such as the Broken O Ranch just west of Great Falls, Montana, which recently had an asking price of $132,500,000.

Jonathan Miller, chief executive of New York real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel, Inc told Forbes, "It is something that’s come of age in the past two years in response to global economic turmoil, where wealthy individuals are looking for ways to invest, and ultra-high-end real estate seems to be the asset of choice.” And there is nothing conservative about these acquisitions. Some are palatial estates well over 10,000 square feet with amenities like ballrooms that fit 200 guests, 50-seat home theaters and regulation-sized athletic facilities. Then there are the penthouse spreads with private elevators and terraces with jaw-dropping views.

CORRECTION: This slideshow previously included Oprah's home and misstated its worth -- and while the estate is certainly palatial, it ends up not making the $100 million mark.
