What is a ‘Mansion’ and where are they?

In the appraiser world, a mansion is generally defined as a home with at least five bedrooms and 15 rooms (and we’re not talking about two mobile homes hooked together!). You would think Miami, Chicago, or Los Angeles would all be at the top of the list, but we’d be wrong!

SmartAsset, a technology firm analyzed Census information and came up with the following list.

The top 10 mansions in metro areas

  1. Provo-Orem, Utah
  2. Ogden-Clearfield, Utah
  3. Salt Lake City
  4. Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Conn.
  5. Washington, D.C.
  6. Atlanta
  7. Honolulu
  8. Orlando, Fla.
  9. Raleigh, N.C.
  10. Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, Calif.
