How much money do you need to be considered a 1 percenter?
The folks at Estately have come up with an interesting way to answer that question.
A new post on the site sets out to "determine the minimum it would cost to buy one of the 1 percent most expensive homes in each state."
And it's no surprise that Colorado winds up near the upper end of the list.
Look below to count down the minimum price tag for the top twelve states on the list, complete with Estately data and photos from the site showing the most expensive home for sale in each at this writing; the one from Colorado clocks in at $33 million.
