One million dollars is an awful lot of money. Youtube channel The Richest looked at what kind of home that amount of cash can get you you across the United States, and, depending on where you are, the comparisons may have you packing your bags.
In a city like New York, a $1 million home is a small two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with a tiny balcony. While it’s not news to anyone that New York City’s housing market is eye-wateringly expensive, it’s still surprising to see how much more bang for your buck you can get in Chicago, where a $1 million home is a fancy three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo; in LA, you get a five-bedroom, three-bathroom house with a garden in serious need of some TLC; and in Miami, you can live in a luxurious condo with views of the ocean.
In Detroit, Nashville, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, $1 million gets you actual mansions with too many bedrooms and bathrooms to use them all, pools, and giant backyards — all in fancy neighborhoods, of course.
