Describing it as a special place in a tweet, Musk said that he wanted to sell it to a large family who will live there. His current residence is in Boca Chica, Texas near his Space Exploration Technologies Corp. Starbase rocket manufacturing plant that he rents for $50,000. He moved there last year.
In 2020, he started selling his properties first with two of his Bel Air assets. Following this, it was also reported that Tesla CEO sold another of his five properties, out of which four of these were in Los Angeles and had a combined price of $62.5 million. One of these houses was dear Elon Musk as it belonged to the famous actor Gene Wilder, the lead actor in the 1971 fantasy film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
According to a UK media report, Musk has taken on this route to lessen criticisms of his wealth. He has also gone on record saying that possessions weigh one down. He said, “People say, “Hey, billionaire, you got all this stuff.” “Well, now I don’t have the stuff — now what are you gonna do?”
