Minecraft founders $70 Million Mansion

Minecraft founders $70 Million Mansion

When video game studio Mojang was bought by Microsoft for $2.5 billion in September 2014, Minecraft's creator Markus Persson became a billionaire. 

A few months later, news broke that the newly wealthy Persson — or "Notch," as he's known in the gaming community — had dished out $70 million for an out-of-this-world mansion in Beverly Hills. 

The home was built on spec by handbag designer and home developer Bruce Makowsky. In addition to an infinity pool, eight bedrooms, and fifteen bathrooms, the 23,000-square-foot home came furnished with some very expensive decor. 

We've rounded up some of the craziest facts about Notch's new home here.

1. Persson paid well below the asking price, but it still set a record.

When the home was first put on the market back in August of 2014, it was listed for $85 million. Though Persson's $70 million was far less than the asking price, it still was the most ever paid for a home in Beverly Hills.

2. He outbid Jay-Z and Beyonce.

The music power couple had reportedly visited the home six times, and rumor had it they were ready to close on a deal shortly before news of Persson's purchase broke.

3. The garage can accommodate 16 cars.

This home was built for a supercar lover. There's a hydraulic car lift that can move vehicles from the garage down to a lower-level lounge.

In the lounge, a rotating turntable surrounded by glass becomes a kind of gallery that can display cars from all angles.

4. A living room set made by Bentley cost $500,000.

The living room was furnished with massive leather sofas and chairs. 

The pillows are monogrammed with the Bentley "B." 

5. A giant candy wall cost $200,000 to stock. 

Located right next to the home gym, the candy wall features 25 different kinds of candy and sculptures of the M&M's characters.

6. A wine cellar came stocked with bottles of Dom Perignon.

In addition to fully stocked vodka and tequila bars, there's an enormous wine cellar that can fit hundreds of bottles.

According to Forbes, several boxes of Dom Perignon were included in the $70 million price tag. 

7. There are 15 bathrooms, each with a toilet that cost $5,600.

The bathrooms are equipped with fancy Toto Nearest toilets. Designers spent $84,000 on the toilets alone. 

8. There's also a set of fire extinguishers made by famous designers.

Artistic fire extinguishers made by Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton are displayed in a glass case in the master bath. 

According to Yahoo Homes, a carved stone bathtub cost a jaw-dropping $85,000.

9. The dining room has 24 place settings that cost $3,700 each.

When Persson wants to dine with guests, he can host them at a stunning onyx dining room table that's 18 feet long and can accommodate 24 people.

The 24 place settings were designed by Robert Cavalli. 

10.  A home theater has seats for 18 people.

The plush seats are arranged stadium-style on three levels. A 90-inch high-definition screen is ideal for private screenings.  

11. A 54-foot wall of glass opens up to an enormous infinity pool.

The pool's fountains can be controlled with an iPad. The deck offers some of the best views of Los Angeles you'd find anywhere.

12. The home came furnished with a ton of valuable art.

The pieces include a blue glass sculpture of a hand grenade. It's worth $250,000.

There's also a .50-caliber Ma Deuce machine gun that once rested on top of a World War II tank but is now covered in chrome. 

13. It even came with a gold toothbrush just for Notch.

When listing agent Branden Williams said the home came completely furnished, he meant it. "I provided eight OralB 3D Braun toothbrushes," Williams said to Forbes. "I’m tired of the line 'Just bring your toothbrush.'" Persson even got his own special gold toothbrush.

10 Reasons to Market Your Listings with Video

     With the emerging popularity of online video, what real estate agent wouldn't want at least a little bit of video attached to their listing? There are more then a few reasons why you would want video and not many reason why you wouldn't. Photos are great and engaging text content is equally important, but nothing may quite tell the story the way a video can. A video can truly give you the power to reach anyone.

Here are the Top 10 reasons to have a video made specifically for your listing.

#10 YouTube is the #2 Search Engine in the WORLD! 

After Google, YouTube the biggest search engine. 3 billion people search YouTube for recipes, comedy, products and properties a month.  Be sure to have a great hd property tour of your listing so you can be sure that you are doing all that you can for your customer. When you incorporate aerial footage into your listing, it really gives a cinematic effect that is sure increase interest. If you don't have a property video you're missing out on potential buyers. Please see the infographic from Mushroom Networks about the impact that YouTube has on the internet.  

#9 Other Agents will become familiar with your home 

There is no real way that an agent can become familiar with all the listings that are on the market at any given time. By incorporating video into your listing, you are at least providing the opportunity for other agents to get intimate with your home. The agents have the buyers who are ready to go NOW! And they only want to suggest properties to their clients that they are confident they will like. A well made video saves the agent a trip to preview your property (whenever they can fit it into their schedule). You won't have to ready your home for the agent to tour it to see if it will meet their clients expectations, and the agent can send your property to their clients right away with confidence.

 

#8 Homes with videos are proven to increase interest 

The saying goes "a picture is worth a thousand words" and cliché rebuttal to that is "well then how many is a video worth". It is fair to say that both are just as valuable. However, photographs aren't able to capture the inspiration that a property has as well as video can, especially aerial video for that matter. Once the viewer is engaged in your video, they will know whether it is for them or if it isn't. 

#7 Hiring a experienced video team will instantly make you look like a marketing genius and a consummate professional

The service at Aerial Agents was put in place to fill a void within the marketplace. There are always so many nice homes on the market and sometimes the listings include less then desirable photos that were taken with an iPhone! That leaves a Real Estste agent no room to consider themselves a marketing professional. Investing in video with boost your sales rate, your reputation and your perceived intelligence. After all, People who are trying to sell their home are trusting you with their most valuable asset. 

#6 You Will Be Forced To Get Your Home 100% Showing Ready

Your listing video has the potential to inspire dreams! There's something that's a little more fun about getting your home ready for its film debut then getting it ready for some strangers to tromp through it. Grab onto that spark of cinematic inspiration and make your house its best version of itself. Think of it as a movie set and declutter, brighten with lamps and by removing (if only temporarily) light blocking window dressings. Do that at the beginning and you'll be able to keep it that way. It won't be such a drag to get ready when those strangers do show up to tromp through. Staging early will help with the video, the photos, and SHOWINGS!

#5 The Service Won't Break the Bank

I can't speak for every company that offers real estate videos, but at Aerial Agents we offer packages that start at $400 that includes exterior video (ground and aerial perspectives) and interior video. This package also includes photos and a flyer designed specifically for that listing.

#4 Easy to Share

Now that every online video comes with a share function, It allows for increased audience sizes that would have otherwise never been seen, liked or shared. 

#3 It's easy to Persuade People with Video

It is one thing to write down the reasons why someone should buy the house you are selling. But, it is quite another to actually see the way the house is laid out. Using video is your opportunity to truly show off everything your listing has to offer. 

#2 Flatter Your Customer! 

Nothing says "I Care" like putting your all into making your customer happy. When you order a video to be made of their house, It's gets exciting for them almost like they are living in "The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" Robin Leach voiceover not included.  

#1 Views of Properties With Video Tours are 10-1 Over Properties Without Videos

It's a FACT. Decision makers don't always have the time to read lengthy text. It's much easier for someone to tell the story for them. Click HERE to read the latest report from Website Magazine about some "In Your Face" facts about how helpful video can be.
