Homes: What you can buy for $5 million

Homes for $5 million are considered extravagant almost everywhere.

That real estate price point is nearly 28 times as expensive as the current U.S. median home value of $179,200, according to Zillow. Even in notoriously posh and outrageously pricey markets like Beverly Hills, California, which has an approximately $3 million median home value, $5 million could snag a pretty nice place to call home.

While trends indicate that $5 million will often buy lux amenities like large closets and patios with a view, it won't necessarily buy a 10,000-square-foot manse. In the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan, it'll buy 2,561 square feet and a fireplace. In the Oceanfront neighborhood of Miami Beach, it'll buy 1,844 square feet and a spa-like master bathroom.

Here are 10 properties on the market for around $5 million across the country.
