NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Just as many people dream of one day being millionaires, for many homebuyers, the dream is a million-dollar home.

Even with the recent real estate boom, that's still well above the median price of a home in the United States, which stood at $171,600 in the fourth quarter of 2003.

But in many markets, the real estate boom has pushed prices into the stratosphere. The San Francisco Bay area was the most expensive market in the fourth quarter, according to the National Association of Realtors, with a median price of $574,300.

Of course, what a million bucks gets you depends on what market you're buying in. Click here for a sampling of million-dollar homes from around the country.  Top of page
