What a $1M Home Looks Like Across America

Cameron Huddleston

In some places in the U.S., you can buy a lot of home for $1 million. But in others, you don’t get nearly as much square footage, land or amenities for the money. It all depends on the market. To identify what typical million-dollar homes for sale look like in most states, GOBankingRates worked with online real estate resource Trulia.

The homes selected were originally priced at around $1 million when they were placed on the market. Some have since sold for less, while others have been taken off the market. If they sold recently, the sale price is also included.
