A billion dollars seems like a lot of money, but what exactly would it buy you around the world? There are a few billion dollar homes, like Antilia, the 27-story luxury tower in Mumbai, but usually a billion dollars can buy you much more than just a single mansion– like the entire Villa Leopolda in France, or even Buckingham Palace.
You could also buy multiple properties for slightly less money– like a $400 million penthouse in the Odeon Tower in Monaco plus two entire floors of luxurious apartments underneath it. You could also grab multiple multi-million dollar properties in California, like a mansion called “The One” in Bel Air and another luxurious estate simply called “Billionaire”– because only billionaires can afford it. There’s way more than just houses to buy when you’ve got that first billion, though. What about an Eclipse yacht, the second most expensive yacht in the entire world? It even has its own mini-submarine.
There’s also “The Streets of Monaco” yacht, which is exactly how it sounds– an entire floating city. You could even buy your own private island complete with a mansion, like a $21 million one off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada– and you’ll need your own Boeing 747-8 VIP private plane to help get you there. When all else fails, you could also just buy yourself a sports team, like the Boston Bruins or Miami Marlins. So, check out this video to satisfy your curiosity about what exactly a billion dollars can buy.
