Hint:  It’s not necessarily a mansion.

At one time homes for one million dollars and above were automatically considered “luxury real estate.” You might picture a waterfront mansion with a Jaguar out front in the circular drive. Yet home prices have been on the rise across the country and locally, and recently San Jose, Calif. was in the news when the average home price hit more than one million. Although nationally the median home price was just $240,700 in the second quarter of 2016, that doesn’t buy you much in many parts of California. What does one million dollars really buy you in some local areas?

Let’s take a look:
