Statistics show most million dollar listings are in the sunny south (according to Realtor Magazine). My introduction to luxury homes came when I provided marketing services for Dream Homes Magazine. You can search for million dollar homes in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Miami and New York on their website.

    While not a feature of a luxury home, we all know luxury often is about location. How about the views above La Jolla in San Diego County California for a captivating view, day or night?

    If privacy, space and perhaps a vineyard are on your wishlist, consider a luxury estate property, in let’s say Santa Barbara. This rare oceanfront estate wedged between the ocean and the Los Padres National Forest is this 1800 acre coastal gem of Santa Barbara, CA. It offers 2 miles of unspoiled oceanfront which might be feature number 11 that luxury home buyers are dreaming about. They’re not making land anymore either, so investing in real property near the seaside might have the best potential as the US economy returns.

  10. Sports Courts
