Sure, the quintessential enclaves of privilege, like Beverly Hills and Malibu, are typically larger in terms of square footage. But there are other popular hotspots which offer ample living space without the giant price tags. Take Atlanta, for example: the average home is an impressive 2,074 square feet, but the median home price comes in around $150,000, according to Zillow estimates. And then of course you have the gritty Gothams of America -- pricey, dense cities where big price tags come in small packages. Think shoebox chic in New York City.
