The US has long been home to jaw-dropping real estate with equally jaw-dropping price tags.

Jonathan Miller, the president and CEO of real estate and consulting firm Miller Samuel Inc., has spent the past few years compiling all the sales of single-family homes and condos at or above $50 million in the US.

He's shared that information with Business Insider so that we could round up the 16 most expensive residential sales the country has seen over the past 10 years.

From a number of $100 million mansions to one nearly $240 million penthouse, 15 out of the 16 most expensive homes are located in either Florida, New York, or California — three states with notoriously expensive housing markets. In fact, the most recent homes to make the list include the Chartwell Estate in Los Angeles, California, which sold for a jaw-dropping $150 million, and a $111 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Keep reading to see a full ranking of the 16 most expensive home sales the country has seen since December of 2009.
