Musk made the decision to downsize last year, broadcasting his decision via a post on social media: “I’ve sold almost all my personal possessions. I won’t even own a house”.
The tech mogul went on to list all his houses, apart from this massive mansion in a beautiful and affluent neighborhood in San Francisco, which recently was put on the market for $38 million. When this property sells, Musk will have relinquished all of his personal real estate properties.
He Sold All His Real Estate
So why would a billionaire like Elon Musk want to make such an unexpected move and downsize? Apparently, Musk has recently sold much of his real estate portfolio, also listing his property to focus on SpaceX and his mission to Mars.
Or could it be that he's decided to live way below his means in an attempt to prepare himself for his future on Mars?
His New Home
Back in June 2021, Elon Musk shared some intimate details about his new prefab home via Twitter: “My new home is actually a ~$50k house in Boca Chica, which is situated at the Starbase that I rent from SpaceX," he tweeted.
This seems to be an unprecedented move, even for Elon Musk. The serial entrepreneur's new home in Texas is much more modest than his previous homes.
Living in Texas With Grimes
Elon has parted ways with six of his properties, which happens to be quite a collection of real estate. One of his properties included a ranch-style house estate that was once owned by the famous star, Gene Wilder.
Not long after listing his properties, Musk announced his plan to move to Texas, where his current partner, famous musician Grimes, lives. The couple has a son together named X Æ A-XII, known as X.
A Unique Couple
As unconventional as this couple is — they have both expressed interest in living on Mars, which is quite a lofty concept, but one that Elon is currently exploring through SpaceX.
While Elon and Grimes have yet to tie the knot, we are pretty sure they will do so in a totally non-traditional way, maybe outside the Earth's atmosphere?
