California Homes Worth Over $1,000,000 Show The Crazy Reality Of Living In California

When you were a little kid, you probably dreamed of one day making or winning a million dollars. As much as we hate to be the bearers of bad news, those paper stacks won't get you too far in these cities. These California homes worth over $1,000,000 show the crazy reality of the surging property prices here.

We're not saying that all parts of the state are impossible to live in. In fact, many cities here are afforable. 

However, as the average cost of living continues to skyrocket and wealthy investors scoop up real estate like hawks, a good home is becoming harder and harder to come by.

Let's cut to the chase though. You're not here to see what Kylie Jenner's mansion looks like (although we're all curious TBH) or run our fingers along a marble countertop. 

You're probably wondering who in the world would fork out seriously big cash for the kind of homes you saw on this cover. Or who knows? Maybe you're on the lookout for a major fixer upper. 

Whatever the case may be, there's no denying your jaw will hit the floor when you see these (dare we say) homes and their ridiculously-high asking prices.
