Different between method and property?

Properties are supposed to return a value and the same value each time unless something else is called in between.

A Method on the other hand is typically expected to do something in the background to get the value, or that the method may change the value each time it is called, like GetNextId() or something.

DateTime.Now is a good example of a Property that should have been a Method since it returns a different value each time it is used.
