Relative Values: What $5 Million Buys Around the World

From global cities to resort destinations, discover the diverse range of residential property offerings available for $5 million

Similar to the starting price for luxury, the property offerings and their respective square footage at a particular price point vary significantly from market to market. In the most highly sought-after global cities, homebuyers with $5 million to spend can choose from luxury 1,000- to 3,000-square-foot apartments in the heart of the city or 3,000-plus-square-foot townhouses in the suburbs. In second-home resort markets around the world, homebuyers with a $5 million investment have considerably more leverage when it comes to square footage, with properties ranging from 5,000- to 15,000-square-foot villas near the beach or landed estates in the countryside.
