Here’s what $1M worth of prime real estate looks like in the world’s top cities: Knight Frank

From the New York website: What does $1 million get you in luxury real estate? Angelenos know that the answer, at least in prime neighborhoods, is “not a hell of a lot, but more than it does in New York.” But since many luxury apartment buyers are choosing between a host of alpha cities, the folks at Knight Frank thought it would be interesting to compare different cities across the globe and see what part of a home one could afford with a $1 million budget.

In the City of Angels, you’d be able to secure a 700-square-foot master bedroom. In Manhattan, your money would get you a charming 290-square-foot study. Faced with that budget in Miami, however, you’d be able to get yourself a nice, ocean-facing 829-square-foot terrace.

Outside the U.S., the numbers get even more interesting. Along with its incredible historical heritage and cosmopolitan scene, buyers in Istanbul could afford a palatial, 1,011-square-foot dining room. In Hong Kong, you’d get a humble guest bath, whereas London would allow you a fine master bath.

The most uppity of them all? In Monaco, the world’s foremost playground of the super-rich, $1 million would get you a 183-square-foot dressing room.

(Source note from Knight Frank/The Wealth Report 2016: Price ranges for Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai are for properties considered “Super-Prime.” Prices used in the calculation for Sydney and Hong Kong are based on apartments only and for New York, Los Angeles and Miami based on condos only.
