That the richest man in the world, according to Forbes magazine, Elon Musk, has confessed that he lives in the spare rooms of his friends, is something striking, especially since he has seven children, and his wife confessed a long time ago that he lived in a house ‘ insecure’.
Musk is known for having bought a prefabricated house to live near the Tesla factory, and now he has confessed that when he has to travel or visit different cities, he stays with friends. “Surely it would be very problematic if I spent billions of dollars a year on personal consumption, but it is not the case,” he said, in relation to all the criticism he receives for his life and the great economic difference in the United States.
Musk said months ago that his main residence is a rental home owned by SpaceX , which costs $50,000 and is close to the company’s headquarters in Texas, so he doesn’t waste time going to work.
He also owned a home for events in the Texas Bay Area, an area built by the Spanish Army two centuries ago. He also owned a mansion in Austin, a house that would have cost about 12 million dollars, and that now belongs to Ken Howery, co-founders of PayPal, and who was also the United States ambassador to Sweden from 2019 to 2021.
For months the businessman has confessed that he has gotten rid of almost all his real estate. Elon Musk sold all seven of his California homes for $128 million after promising he “wouldn’t own any homes,” according to Sky News.
Musk sold Willy Wonka actor Gene Wilder’s former home and The Chocolate Factory to Jordan Walker-Pearlman’s nephew, so the property would remain within the family. He also sold one of his Bel Air mansions to Chinese billionaire William Ding , who paid $29 million. He sold four more houses in Bel Air to Los Angeles real estate developer Ardie Tavangarian.
