Remember that song by Bare Naked Ladies called “If I Had a Million Dollars”?  The first line of that song says.

If I Had $1000000 (If I Had $1000000)
I'd buy you a house (I would buy you a house)

Well, I’m about to show you and the Bare Naked Ladies what kind of house you can get for a million dollars in different cities all across the United States.  Think they are all the same?  Think again.  In San Francisco you’ll pay on average $666 per square foot.  At one million dollars that’s only 1,500 square feet.  Head over to Detroit and only pay $12 per square foot.  That right there is a pretty big house for a million bucks!

Here’s the full list of cities and number of square feet you can get for a million dollars.
