Even the rich who can afford multi-million-dollar homes can pick over the foreclosure carnage left behind by the devastated real estate market. Except they can do it in style — by private jet instead of foreclosure tours by bus, or by boat.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Luxury Homes of Las Vegas and JetSuite Air are co-hosting a free “Luxury Home Foreclosure Private Jet Tour” from Los Angeles to Las Vegas this Saturday, April 17.
According to the press release, three bank-owned luxury estates in Vegas — all more than 10,000 sq ft — will be viewed from the air. The jet leaves LA at 10 am and returns at 6 pm. Only qualified buyers who show “…proof of funds and net worth sufficient to purchase a luxury home…” are welcome on the tour.
