As per reports in the media, Musk delivered on a vow to exit California, selling all physical possessions, including six Californian mansions.
“My primary home is literally a $50k house in Boca Chica/Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It’s kinda awesome though,” Musk said earlier in a tweet. “Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen someday,” he continued.
Elon Musk lives very modestly by billionaire standards. Only 1 residential house (plus 1 for events).@ElonMusk uses less resources than most multi-millionaires despite working way harder.
Plus $ sitting in stocks, makes each $ outside worth more exactly proportionally.
