Dude 700k can get you a nice house pretty much anywhere outside of Cali/NY.

If I had a million that I had to spend today, I would buy a House and an Audi RS4

This one's tough.

600k house in Myrtle Beach, SC
300k for a car collection
100k on everything else in the house

$500k would most certainly buy you a house worthy of being called "very nice" in this country...sure it might be a shack in downtown New York City but the average family house in this country is around $300k I think...

$500k is almost twice as good as the average...


a bar for $230k doesn't seem very likely though...that does seem very ghetto...a cheap Subway Sandwiches is over $100k...

Default Re: You get one million dollars to spend in 1 day.

If I just had one day to spend it my top priority would definitely be to pay off all my student loans, then I'd buy a house. Nothing too extreme just someting around 300-400 thousand. Then I'd probably buy my parents a house (just in the 200,000 range), my dad a boat, my mom...something lol. Maybe a nice 60-70 thousand dollar car and the rest i'd just blow on random stuff like TVs and season tickets

I guess our definitions of very nice are just different. You could certainly buy a house you can be proud of but nothing too unique. Might as well just buy the car and take the rest of your money and get something better. Buying a house is an investment anyways so that 200k is wasted taking on more risk, and the bar is another big risk too.

-Get an RV and just drive across the county. I'm dying to see something besides this pathetic area of the country. I'd book it to CBS Television City right now, on the spot, so I could try to achieve one of my lifelong dreams, which is to be a contestant on the Price is Right.

-Cincinnati Reds season tickets

-pay off student loans and other debt

-give a substantial portion to my family

-pay someone in the Reds' organization to let me and my friends play pickup baseball at Great American Ballpark.

-etc, etc

you have to spend $1 million is 1 day but you are not allowed to keep anything or have anything in your name from that $1 million after that...
