What $1 Million, $5 Million and $10 Million Buys You in 2015

Now that the first Coldwell Banker Previews International® Luxury Market Report of 2015 has officially been released, it’s been our tradition to take a look at the caliber of properties you could buy in the top 20 U.S cities for active luxury home listings. We searched through our current Previews® listings priced at or around $1,000,000, $5,000,000 and $10,000,000 in the top 20 cities and found some intriguing real estate possibilities.

If you had about $1 million to spend, for example, would you invest in a swanky penthouse in downtown Chicago or a peaceful Southwest contemporary in Scottsdale? At $5 million, would you spring for a quiet Hacienda in coastal Santa Barbara or a mountain retreat in Aspen? If your budget is closer to $10 million, would you think the sky’s the limit in Miami Beach, where you could have a waterfront masterpiece on Sunset Island?  Or would you rather live in a beachside palace on the other side of the coast in Laguna Beach?
