$1 million will buy you something very different depending on whether you’re shopping for a home in Miami vs. Minneapolis.
MarketWatch staffer Sally French consulted Redfin's database of listed homes to develop her selection of $1 million properties in each of the 20 cities in the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city composite index. French writes:
For just $1,000 shy of $1 million, a home buyer in Atlanta can purchase this seven-bedroom, 6 ½-bathroom, 4,203-square-foot home in Peachtree Park. The house comes with three fireplaces, an in-law suite, a sprawling backyard, and not one but two walk-in closets.
