Well, frankly, not as much as you might expect.  For a million dollars, I would like six bedrooms, five bathrooms, three car garage, a pool, a basement, and for the home to be move-in ready.  A girl can dream.

Coral Gables-33146

In my current zip code, 33146, which is a section of Coral Gables, Florida, there are fifteen single family homes available between $800,000 to $999,999.  4722 Alhambra Circle, a lovely Old Spanish home listed by Slesnick and Jochem for $998,000 has three bedrooms and bathrooms, a beautiful pool and interesting ceiling features.  The kitchen and bathrooms could do with an update.

Before we moved to Miami in 2004, we lived in Chicago.  Old Town, 60610, to be exact where 347 Evergreen Avenue is for sale. Built in 1997, the home featured three levels and a bit of a back yard, a rarity in this neighborhood.  With three bedrooms and four baths, this 3200-square foot home is located on a corner lot, offering lots of natural light. And, as I recall, this is walking distance to Starbucks and the grocery store–and the famous Chicago elevated train, the “el”.

Many moons ago, back in the 1990s, I lived in Atlanta in the 30309 zip code.  And, I have always dreamed of living in Brookwood Hills one day {real estate dreams, you know). Currently, there is a charming, 1,800-square feet, three bedroom home for sale at 111 Huntington Road NE, listed by Patti Junger for $879,000.  Brookwood Hills features a pool, tennis courts and park in the center of the neighborhood, and by all accounts, the neighbors are a very close bunch.

So, each zip code has an option for buyers with a price range up to $999,999.  Here at home in Miami, the EWM 2017 Real Estate Market Outlook reports that 46% of all single family home sales in Miami were in the $300,000 to $999,999 price range. Prices were down slightly, year over year, as compared to 2015 and supply is down.  If you are considering selling and your home would be listed within this range, market forces are on your side.
