According to Business Insider, Elon Musk completed the sale of his properties at the end of 2021 with a house in San Francisco valued at $50 million. It is interesting to understand the motivations of the richest man in the world to get rid of his attributes.
Elon Musk does not want to be an owner
Elon Musk – the richest person in the world – claims he doesn’t own his own house right now. The Tesla and SpaceX mogul has said in the past that he doesn’t have the mega mansion one would expect. Instead, he couch-surfs, he said in a recent interview with TED’s Chris Anderson.
“I don’t even own an apartment right now, I’m literally staying with friends,” Musk said during the interview, shared during a TED video you can find on YouTube. “If I’m going to the Bay Area, where most of Tesla’s engineering is, I’m basically rotating through spare guest rooms. »
Elon Musk loves the collapsible house concept
It was the start-up Boxabl that managed to convince Elon Musk to buy his house. It must be said that these houses are available anywhere and under any conditions.
We were able to find a video on Youtube which allows us to better understand Elon Musk’s interest in sleeping in this type of house. Here are the points we have noted to explain to you that you should not imagine that it denigrates comfort.
The main characteristics of the Boxabl house
- Deliverable very quickly on a building site: It is not constantly obliged to find its comfort as that can be the case in the hotels. It’s well known that CEOs have time-saving habits and it may seem simplistic to you, but knowing exactly where things are can be a powerful argument for a leader of this nature.
- Features similar to a luxury home:
- three meters high under the ceiling.
- Exceptional insulation in both hot and cold weather.
- Large windows two and a half meters high.
- Solid walls.
- An American kitchen.
- Production issues that Elon Musk knows well. Indeed, the manufacture of the first house took three weeks, now they assemble two houses per week and they will soon increase to 6 houses per week.
- This house costs only $50,000
The sale of his last house in 2019
Elon Musk shocked the world in 2019 when he announced he was going to sell his entire real estate portfolio to focus on his ambition to take humanity to Mars.
His latest home, a mega-home in San Francisco, has now found a buyer after a staggering price cut of more than $5m (£3.6m).
The billionaire is now in the surreal position of owning no homes – a bizarre feat for one of the world’s richest tycoons.
What a first-time Tesla owner and Elon Musk fan thinks
Martin00A member of the Tesla Mag forum shares his point of view on the trend of Elon Musk which contrasts with the habits of billionaires. We have indicated that movement is not only a question of image, it is also a new philosophy of life which can affect many people.
“It makes sense to me. I am considering a similar move.
I find caring for houses, cars, objects of all kinds to be a time consuming and emotionally draining experience.
Make your own meals, clean your bathroom, wash your clothes, etc. are cherished and valued parts of many people’s lives.
But for people who are driven by achievement and who work very long hours, who travel frequently around the world, who support multiple business ventures, and who have widely dispersed families, keeping one home — let alone multiple – just doesn’t make sense.
I don’t even want a rental house. If I could justify it financially, I would live in the hotel from now on. Elon Musk could easily justify it. »
