How ‘Bout a Billion Dollars?

February 16, 2009


Q: Is there such a thing as a billion-dollar property?stack-of-money

A: Not yet. Of course, there are some who remember when a million-dollar home was a big deal. Even with prices dropping, a million-dollar home is the norm in many areas.

But have you ever thought about how much a billion is?

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Roman centurions walked on earth.

A billion hours ago was the “Stone Age”.

A billion days ago no one walked on the earth.

A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate our government is spending it.

I guess this makes me think…. Owning a house on a piece of land in the right location is still the best way to invest for your family.

Shall I give you a billion reasons why?
