Real Estate: What One Million Dollars Can Buy

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

$1,000,000.00. Seems like a steep price.

Yet, this asking price is not all that uncommon—especially in real estate.

In the United States, one million dollars can buy luxurious homes, worthy of such high price tags.

In Philadelphia, there are many million dollar luxury homes on the market.

In a previous blog article, we reported to you the five most expensive homes that Philadelphia had to offer. The prices of these homes surpassed the declared “$1,000,000.00″ price tag —and they were nothing short of remarkable. Their features, amenities and location were unmatched.

Today, we want to broaden our search.

We want to sneak a peek at what other markets have to offer —but this time, we will cap the cost of the homes. Today, we will present to you what one million dollars can buy in real estate, across the map. (We think you’ll agree that even with the price cap, these homes are still remarkable).

Here are our noteworthy findings:
