Million dollar homes are all the rage now, according to the latest report from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors. Nearly 38 percent more homes priced over $1 million sold this May compared to May 2016.

So even though it’s way out my price range, let’s take a look at what $1,050,000 gets you in Denver and three other markets.


There’s no pool filled with money or other such trappings of obvious wealth, but this is still a pretty good looking home. And if you love the modern aesthetic, this home has it in spades, from its angular exterior, to the rectangular cabinets of kitchen.


It may look like a standard family residence, but this home happens to be just a mile from Chautauqua, so that’s a pretty big perk. Otherwise, this is the smallest house of the bunch by almost 500 feet.


157 17th Street

  • $1,050,000
  • 3 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, 2,342 square feet

This home was built in 1909, according to its listing. The features of the home seem to corroborate that, with lots of hanging light fixtures and colonial details. This Atlanta home is also the only million dollar home with a pool, so that makes it a strong contender in my eyes.


This is exactly what I imagine when I think of expensive Seattle real estate: lots of windows, recessed lighting, verdant plant life out the windows. The staging is a touch sterile, but I’m getting light Ex Machina vibes, so purchase if your life plan includes becoming a tech billionaire.
