What a $1 million home looks like in 17 major cities across America

A million dollars will buy you a lot more house in Texas than in California.

In fact, a million-dollar home in Dallas is more than twice the size of a similarly priced house in Los Angeles, according to real estate listing site Trulia.

To find out how home sizes compare across America, we asked Trulia to gather million dollar listings — homes priced between $995,000 and $1,100,000 — for the largest metro areas in the US.

Below, check out how much square footage homebuyers get for $1 million in 17 major US housing markets.
