Five luxury homes you can buy for $1m

Property site Lamudi lists five properties in emerging markets around the world that have a price tag of around $1 million.


A million dollars may not get you a luxurious residential property in the heart of London, New York, or even Dubai.

Prime property prices have been growing steadily across the world, and on average, increased by 8.4 per cent and 7.3 per cent in North America and Australia respectively in the year to March 2015, according to a recent report by consultancy Knight Frank.

Its Prime Global Cities Index, which tracks the performance of luxury residential prices, has climbed 47 per cent since its financial crisis low in the second quarter of 2009.

However, $1 million still holds a lot of value in several emerging property markets, and can buy you a home complete with private pools, breathtaking views and beachfront living in some parts of the world such as Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, according to property website Lamudi.

Residential property prices in Jeddah, specifically for villas, grew only 2.5 per cent in Q1, compared to the same period last year, a recent report by consultancy JLL found.

Prices are further forecast to see a slowdown in growth over the next six months as prices near their peak, the report added.

Here are five homes across the world that come with a price tag of about $1 million or less, as listed by Lamudi.
