A Los Angeles megamansion that's been sitting on the market for two years just upped its price by R300 million, Barron's reported.

The seven-bedroom Beverly Hills home was first put on the market for $100 million – the equivalent of R1.5 billion – in 2017. It's now asking R1.2 billion, up from the R885 million it had been listed for since May 2019.

Since it was first listed, developer Nile Niami, known for building extravagant Los Angeles megamansions on spec, has slashed the home's price several times, first by $15 million, then again by another $20 million. In May, he reduced it again by another $5.1 million.

According to the house's listing agents, Rayni and Branden Williams of Williams and Williams, Niami saw a change in the market and felt like the home was worth more than R885 million.

"The plot of land next door sold for $30 million (R440 million) and the land across the street sold for $25.5 million (R370 million) having no homes on them," listing agent Rayni Williams of Williams and Williams told Business Insider. "For that reason Mr. Niami raised his price."

Take a look inside the extravagant Beverly Hills mansion.

Branden Williams told The Real Deal that "just to get dirt up here is roughly 30 million bucks. The value keeps peaking and [Niami felt] that the property should be worth more, so that's why he changed the price."
