When the economic atmosphere is perfect, both to invest in buying house or business can earn money easily. For realestate, it has been a great success if you can sell it on a three or four times price, and a more than seven times growth has seldom been seen; but for a business, a good external conditions also make a new company grow much faster and smoother, and there are almost no limit for a company`s growth.
