Elon Musk is selling 5 more properties worth over $100 million, after tweeting earlier this month that he ‘will own no house’
Maverick Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be fulfilling a promise made earlier in May to offload most of his real estate and ultimately “own no house.” Don’t be fooled however, he still has a net worth of some $38 billion.
The listings come after Musk’s stated a desire to wean himself off worldly material possessions. “I am selling almost all physical possessions,” Musk tweeted on May 1.
“Will own no house.”
He has made two Bel Air houses available on the market for $39.5million, while the combined California properties are set to go for a combined $102 million.
Musk recently explained on a podcast, “Possessions kind of weigh you down” — politically, he implied. “They’re kind of an attack vector, you know? People say, ‘Hey, billionaire, you’ve got all this stuff.’ Well, now I don’t have stuff. Now what are you going to do?”
The South African businessman recently welcomed a newborn, X Æ A-12, who has since been trending on Twitter with many asking how the name will be pronounced. The mother of the child, Canadian singer Grimes, attempted to explain the meaning behind the name.
“@Æ, a ligature of a and e known as Canadian singer Grimes, appeared in Latin and Old English but has mostly fallen out of use. However, in some languages such as Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic, Æ is classed as a letter.
The singer has used Æ before, naming a song on her latest album 4ÆM. The A-12 is a Lockheed plane built for the CIA. It was known by designers during its development as Archangel.
