Was anything in this thread talking about land size? Didn't think so.

They also didn't account for home value, right? Which I think is odd, considering that is most people's highest value asset.

actually all of the millionaires in phoenix arent in north scottsdale, the city in arizona with the highest number of millionaires is glendale, the millionaires in scottsdale just have more millions than the millionaires in glendale. and paradise valley puts both cities to shame there is so much damn money in paradise valley its almost disgusting lol. hopefully i can live there someday. and this list seems pretty accurate. it goes by the number of millionaires, not the percentage, if it was percentage wise im sure it would be completely different.

I don't see how Glendale can possibly have more millionaires than the city of Phoenix, but I do agree with your points about wealth.

It isn't a big deal anymore to have a million dollars in assets, especially with the introduction of 401(k)s. Home values aren't included because they often come with inaccurate valuations and liabilities to back it up.

LOL it's because they've fallen off of the million mark... spending too much money on rent

You can live very handsomely on a relatively modest income there. So I would say Harris County has to be the bang-for-buck winner. $1 million buys you a shack in Santa Clara county, in Houston it buys you a bona fide pre-war mansion or mansionette, 3 luxury high-rise 1 bedroom apartments, or, if you're tacky, a McMansion with acreage galore, 3 car garages, 6 or 7 bedrooms, a circular driveway, etc.

Also, New York County (Manhattan) is only like 1.5 million people.
To me, it's pretty evident that Harris is creating millionaires based on the amount of money one saves from living there (it's obviously not that easy, but you get the drift). Considering that mid-level salary is pretty decent, it's probably the best value city around.

In LA, I wouldn't understand the allure of being a millionaire. There's so many (and they're so active around the city) it seems like it wouldn't even be fun or abnormal.

Funny, just a few years ago, it seemed like $1,000,000 was nothing, but its worth probably has overall gone up a bit due to the economic contraction.


~~OFF TOPIC~~

Yay, my 1,000th post!

According to Leno, the Federal Reserve unveiled the new look for the $5 dollar bill...it's the old $10 dollar bill. LOL LOL LOL....if you look at it that way, you can cut all these numbers in half. I can't say I disagree. Our dollar is glorifed toilet paper right now.

Georgia on my mind

Georgia will never be on this list we have too many counties, not like most states that have huge counties. But theres still a lot of millionaires around here! i just need to find one thats single.
