MILLIONAIRE LIFESTYLES

RICH PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

EVER DREAMT OF HAVING ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD.........YOU SHOULD MEET THESE PEOPLE:

MILLIONAIRES ARE WELL SPREAD AROUND THE GLOBE, SOMETIMES ONLY CONCENTRATING IN THE BIG CITIES. ALTHOUGH NOT LIVING IN THE BIGGEST HOUSES IN THE CITY, THEY LIVE ON THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN THE CITY. ESPECIALLY IN THE AREAS WHERE MORE RICH PEOPLE ARE SETTLED DOWN. THE TYPES OF HOUSES AVAILABLE AT A MILLION VARY CONSIDERABLY NOT ONLY FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY BUT FROM AREA TO AREA IN THOSE COUNTRIES. THE UK FOR EXAMPLE HAS VERY MODEST PROPERTIES AVAILABLE IN CENTRAL LONDON BUT IN THE RURAL AREAS LARGE LUXURY HOMES WITH LAND CAN BE ACHIEVED. VIEW OUR PROPERTY SEARCH AND YOU WILL SEE THE HUGE VARIATION OF MILLIONAIRE HOUSES ACROSS THE WORLD.

DREAMING OF SUNBATHING ON A TROPICAL ISLAND FAR FROM SNOW AND SLUSH? YOU AREN'T ALONE. ACROSS THE U.S. AND MUCH OF EUROPE, THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF THE COLDEST, DREARIEST WINTERS ON RECORD. FOR MANY, THE ECONOMY REMAINS AS BLEAK AS THE WEATHER. STILL, IT SEEMS YOU NEEDN'T BE A BAILED-OUT BANKER TO AFFORD AN ISLAND HOME OF YOUR OWN. THAT'S BECAUSE THE HOUSING BUST HIT THE CARIBBEAN AND HAWAII AS HARD AS IT DID ELSEWHERE. PRICES FOR HOMES THAT HAD BEEN PURCHASED AS RETIREMENT OR RENTAL PROPERTIES PLUMMETED WHEN MORTGAGES RESET AND THE GLOBAL ECONOMY FROZE UP. THIS MEANS THAT WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A SECOND HOME OR A FULL-TIME RESIDENCE, THERE ARE PLENTY OF DEALS OUT THERE ON SUCH ISLANDS AS ST. MAARTEN, ELEUTHERA, AND ST. CROIX.

IMAGINE WHERE THE NATION'S MILLIONAIRES RESIDE, AND YOU MAY FIRST THINK OF FAST-PACED NEW YORK CITY, GLAMOROUS LOS ANGELES, OR INNOVATIVE SAN FRANCISCO. BUT WHILE THESE AREAS BOAST SOME OF THE LARGEST NUMBERS OF WEALTHY RESIDENTS, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A GREATER CHANCE OF MEETING A MILLIONAIRE IN LESS OBVIOUS LOCALES -- SAY, LOS ALAMOS, N.M. OR SARASOTA, FLA.

IT COMES DOWN TO SIMPLE ARITHMETIC. THE BIG APPLE, FOR EXAMPLE, HAS BY FAR THE MOST MILLIONAIRE HOUSEHOLDS -- 700,195. BUT WITH MORE THAN 6.8 MILLION HOUSEHOLDS IN THE NEW YORK METROPOLITAN AREA, ONLY ONE IN TEN BOAST A NET WORTH OF $1 MILLION OR MORE. ON THE OTHER HAND, IN LOS ALAMOS, N.M., YOU DOUBLE YOUR CHANCE OF MEETING A MILLIONAIRE. THE TOWN MAY HAVE FEWER THAN 8,000 HOUSEHOLDS, BUT ONE IN FIVE IS WORTH AT LEAST A MILLION BUCKS. THE REASON: THE MAIN INDUSTRY IN TOWN IS THE FAMED LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL LABORATORY, A MAGNET FOR WELL-PAID GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS.

THERE IS A VARIETY OF WISHES WHERE MILLIONAIRES CHOOSE THEIR LOCATION; IN THE CITY, ON THE BEACHFRONT, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY SIDE, IN THE MOUNTAINS, IN THE FOREST, NEAR THE LAKE, ETC. IT'S SO GREAT TO HAVE A CHOICE. WE ALSO LEARNED WHAT DRAWS MILLIONAIRES TO THESE AREAS. THE TOP CITIES TEND TO FALL IN ONE OF THREE CATEGORIES:

1) THEY ARE POPULAR WITH WEALTHY RETIREES.

2) THEY ARE HOME TO INNOVATORS AND GIFTED TALENT POOLS.

3) THEY HAVE A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF CORPORATIONS AND HIGHLY PAID EXECUTIVES.

THE WEALTHY ALSO SEEM TO GATHER NEAR THE COUNTRY'S COASTS. NINE OF THE TOP TEN CITIES ON OUR LIST ARE ON THE ATLANTIC, PACIFIC, OR GULF COASTS. AND FLORIDA SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR STATES AMONG MILLIONAIRES -- THREE OF THE PLACES WITH THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF ÜBER-WEALTHY ARE IN THE SUNSHINE STATE.

WE INCLUDE A WEALTH SNAPSHOT FOR EACH OF THE CITIES IN OUR SLIDESHOW. WE PROVIDE MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME FROM THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT. THESE NUMBERS ILLUSTRATE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY TO HAVE A HIGH NET WORTH. IN FACT, FAMILIES IN HALF OF THE PLACES ON OUR LIST MAKE LESS THAN $65,000 A YEAR. ONLY ONE OF THE AREAS HAD A SIX-FIGURE MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME.

ALTHOUGH TNS'S NUMBERS EXCLUDE THE VALUE OF THE PRIMARY RESIDENCE, WE SHOW YOU THE MEDIAN HOME PRICE IN THE AREA TO GIVE AN IDEA OF HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO BUY IN ONE OF THESE MILLIONAIRE TOWNS. THE NUMBERS CAME FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS AND FROM DATA COMPILED BY SPERLING'S BEST PLACES, WHICH ALSO PROVIDED US WITH COST-OF-LIVING DATA. THE NATIONAL AVERAGE FOR THE COST OF LIVING INDEX IS 100. A NUMBER GREATER THAN 100 MEANS THE CITY IS MORE EXPENSIVE TO LIVE IN THAN THE REST OF THE NATION ON AVERAGE. THE INDEX TAKES INTO ACCOUNT A VARIETY OF FACTORS, INCLUDING THE COST OF FOOD, HOUSING, UTILITIES AND HEALTHCARE.

SO TAKE A LOOK. MAYBE YOU'RE CLOSER TO A MILLIONAIRE HOUSEHOLD THAN YOU THINK.
