What Can 1 Million Dollars Buy?

Blog by Claire LeLacheur | April 7th, 2010

The March real estate numbers are in, and housing prices in greater Vancouver have hit an historic high -- a whopping $1 million for an average house.

I have compiled a list just for fun to see exactly what 1 million dollars will buy you elsewhere, or if you don't have a taste for real estate:

1. Porche GT9-R Prototype.

2. 250 Luis Vitton hand bags.

3. 2 diamond studded collars - 1 for your cat and 1 for your dog, or whomever you like to buy diamond studded collars for!

4. Charter a private jet for 15 days - this also includes the cost of the pilot.

5. Fly from Vancouver to Halifax in Executive Class 400 times.

6. Assuming a 4% interest rate, you can collect $40,741.54 in interest.

7. Buy 500 acres of land in Prince Edward Island - surprsingly this is not the whole Island.

8. 950 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes.

9. 1 modernist impressionist painting on display at the Guggenheim in New York.

10. One average house in Greater Vancouver
