    Question what can u get in the States for 1million usd!?

    Her is an example of a property in my neighborhood for about 1 000 000$
    I think it looks like crap to be honest=/
    Can u post some examples of properties in the us in the same price range!?

    I feel like the people of Norway are getting relay bad value for there money? Or?

    Your question is too general for the US. It will vary greatly by state and by community.

    A $1M in Detroit Michigan right now could buy you entire neighborhood. In Palo Alto California it will get you a 1,400sq/ft townhouse.

    In AZ theres a new area being developed where 500k can buy nice house. 1mil could buy you a sweet place. AZ is nice because were close to cali so it dosent take long to get there. Also once California breaks off and floats away into the Pacific, we get beachfront property

    Well Norway is also one of the most expensive countries in the world.
    Try looking around on wikipedia for neighborhoods around major cities. The google the zip code real estate.

    Norway sucks in all ways possible, we pay 50% of our earnings in tax and VAT. And still everything in Norway costs way to much!

    AZ= Arizona

    Try Zillow - Real Estate, Homes for Sale, Home Prices & Values or Search Homes for Sale & Find Real Estate Agents Who Put You First | Redfin for real estate pricing in the US. As a rule if thumb in California, the closer you get to the coast/ocean the higher the prices. In the US pretty close to 50% of your salary goes to taxes in one form or another. Federal tax, state tax, sales tax (9.5% in much of CA), annual property tax of 1.1% again in CA (that's an additional $11,000 on your $1M house each year), health insurance, disability insurance, social security... Blah, blah, blah...
