In Capetown, South Africa, $US1 million goes a pretty long way. Property24.com

A million-dollar home sounds like a major luxury. But $US1 million buys something vastly different in cities around the world.

In New York City, for example, where the median home sale price is $US1.2 million, a million bucks buys a decent one-bedroom apartment. In Buenos Aires, on the other hand, it buys a four-bedroom pad in a fancy neighbourhood.

Our friends at Point2Homes helped us find properties in major cities across the world for around $US1 million U.S. They range from small flats to spacious houses.
