One homeowner’s misfortune is another savvy home buyer’s opportunity.

Foreclosed homes are a way to snap up properties at a deep discount—particularly when it comes to luxury residences.

And for buyers looking to dive into the deep end of bank-owned homes, there are quite a few repossessed megamansions on the market.

We’ve rounded up a list of the 10 most expensive foreclosures in the country. It’s a dizzying collection of over-the-top properties looking for a buyer interested in living large and scoring a sweet discount at the same time.

There’s a 117-acre vineyard estate listed for $650,000 less than its $7 million purchase price in 2012; a 15,000-square-foot retreat in Idaho available for $1.5 million less than its 2017 price tag; and a rambling ranch in Julian, CA, listed for about a half-million dollars less than its 2000 purchase price.

Think of it like Black Friday for high-end real estate—without the crowds. Enjoy!
