"We are also seeing high-end buyers find value in beautiful but more undiscovered areas just outside of well-known luxury markets," said Betty Graham, president of Coldwell Banker Previews International / NRT. "Whereas a beachfront home may be $16 million in the ultra-luxury hot spot Montecito, Calif., a similar property may be just over $6 million in Carpinteria, Calif., which is only a seven-minute drive away. These hidden gems often offer the same benefits of their neighboring communities, but provide a unique opportunity for luxury buyers looking to optimize their investment."

Glenview, Ill. $286 $69 less than Lincoln Park
