Some US markets are flooded with million-dollar homes while others hardly have any.

A recent study by online loan marketplace LendingTree found the share of million-dollar homes in the 50 largest US metro areas.

In the San Jose metro area, the percentage of million-dollar homes is more than half the total number of homes in the area, while in other metro areas, like Cincinnati, less than 1% of the total number of homes in the area are valued at $US1 million or more.

To gather data for the study, LendingTree sourced from the US Census Bureau’s 2018 American Community Survey with one-year estimates. To find the share of million-dollar homes in each metro area, LendingTree divided the number of homes valued at $US1 million or more by the total number of homes in the area.
