Here’s some of what they discovered this year when it comes to how much real estate you can get for $1 million today…

• In Monaco, the most expensive location to purchase real estate, $1 million will get you about 172 square feet of closet space, I mean home.

• The same amount will score you a much more roomy 517 square feet in Sydney.

• In Berlin, a million bucks will land you around 828 square feet.
