$1.1 Million Looks Very Different Across the Country: Tour Three Houses Listed for This Price

Peek inside a modern home near the mountains, a gated California community, and a one-story home with historic charm.

On our third episode of Listing Price, we'll step inside a series of homes listed for $1.1M. While a million dollars is a lot of money, the type and size of the house you can get varies extensively around the country. While extravagant details and features can increase the price, location is the most influential factor. A home's listing price fluctuates depending on if a home is in a sought-after historic neighborhood, at the end of a cul-de-sac, or within a gated community.

Each of these three homes has a unique buy-it factor that sets them apart on the market, including vintage charm, a gated community in California, and a contemporary lodge with its own elevator. Take a deeper dive into these $1.1M homes and see what your money can buy you in different parts of the United States.
