Million-dollar listings once heralded true luxury for Americans who could afford it, but now — according to a Trulia report last year — more than 4% of all homes across the 100 largest US metros are worth at least $1 million.

According to listings on sites such as Trulia and Zillow, $1 million home sizes vary in each of the United States’ largest metros by population. Findings prove similar to how average $250,000 homes vary depending on location: homes in metros with lower costs of living offer more space for the same price tag.

Below, check out what a million-dollar listing looks like around the US, ordered from the least to most populous city.
