Here’s a New Jersey billionaire starter kit…just in case you win Powerball
Every Powerball player out there has "ideas" about where they'd throw some of that cash first. Ahead of Wednesday's world record drawing, we figured we'd make it even easier should Lady Luck create a new billionaire in Jersey.
What does $1,000,000,000 get you in NJ? A whole lotta luxury- I mean, just look at those zeros!
You'll need a Shore "house" first.
By "house," we mean more like oceanfront compound. Listed at just over $5 million, this 7 bedroom, 8 bath property in Beach Haven has plenty of space for all those cousins who will want to BBQ after your big win. If you're looking to be closer to Atlantic City, we have you covered. There's a bayfront mansion in Longport with your name on it for $6 million.
You'll also want a Jersey place to crash "up north."
Whether you've trekked into New York City for work or fun, you know it'd be nice to have a shorter trip home. Like this 3 bedroom, 3 bath property in Hoboken for $5.2 million - pocket change!
Want to settle somewhere between Shore and City? Behold this Monmouth County estate in Colts Neck. For just $8 million, there's plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms- plus a movie theater, pool with cabana, indoor basketball court, private ice rink and equestrian area.
Now for a nice ride.
If you're a new billionaire that still needs to get to soccer practice, you might opt for a Maserati sedan. The Quattroporte will set you back about $128,000 in Oakhurst. That could do until your new Maserati SUV rolls off the production line this summer.
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
A billion dollar jackpot is a way better reason than a bloodthirsty shark (Jaws) to "need a bigger boat." Jersey's own Viking Yachts has you well-covered there.
The 92EB is the largest model built in Viking’s 50-year history. It offers high-end amenities for spending weeks at sea. Just be sure to budget your Powerball millions, so you can hire a crew.
