In The Real Deal Los Angeles’ latest issue, the magazine took a look at the fast-growing world of ultra-luxury spec homes, where some of L.A.’s most deep-pocketed investors shell out tens, or even hundreds, of millions to create extreme residences catering to the global 0.01 percent.

The resulting story, “La La Land values: A peek at the numbers behind the spec homes arms race,” provides an in-depth look at this risky niche market.
