Last week, Elon Musk said he wants to sells all of his homes. It looks like he might actually follow through. After tweeting about it in early May, Musk apparently listed two of his properties in Los Angeles, worth $39.5 million in total, on real estate site Zillow.  Now, Bloomberg reports that a group of four Los Angeles properties, as well as a mansion in Hillsborough, have been put on sale on Zillow for a combined price of $95.5 million.  I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 1, 2020 "A project for the big thinker, designed to showcase one of the best views in Los Angeles - from the city to the ocean and beyond. Due to listing limitations, additional specs on each individual home, as well as insight on the project as a whole, will be made available upon request by qualified buyers," says the

How to become a real estate investor without going broke
April 30, 2020 at 4:18 am 0
TL;DR: The real estate market can be volatile, but Mashvisor (no relation to Mashable) acts as your assistant by analyzing properties across the country. A lifetime subscription is regularly $1,499, but using code 20SAVE20 signs you up for $31.20 — a 97% savings. Real estate investing, as a concept, is basically as simple as playing Monopoly. In order to succeed, you purchase properties, avoid bankruptcy, and generate rent so you can purchase more properties.  If you don't thoroughly vet a property before committing, though, you could wind up broke. Yikes. Mashvisor (no relation to Mashable) takes the hardest part — finding rental properties that will actually continue to provide a return — and builds it into a service that's as easy to navigate as Zillow. It turns three months of research into about 15 minutes by analyzing nationwide real estate, and you can lock down a lifetime subscription for less than $32 with code

Does Amazon own Seattle?

Walk down Seventh Avenue in downtown Seattle and you can't miss them: Three gigantic spheres resembling melted-together Milk Duds rising in the shadow of Amazon’s new 500-foot-tall office tower.  The architectural oddity has already become a tourist attraction and social media phenomenon. Passersby snap photographs and watch construction crews attach glass panes to the steel frames. Images stream through Instagram and Twitter. When they open in 2018, the 100-foot-tall orbs—Amazon calls them Biospheres—will host more than 300 plant species from around the world, creating what the company sees as the workplace of the future. Amazonians will be able to break from their daily labors to walk amid the greenery along suspension bridges and climb into meeting spaces resembling bird nests perched in mature trees, where the company expects them to brainstorm—and perhaps even invent the next billion-dollar opportunity.

May 28, 2016 at 2:08 pm 0
Want to live like the Tanners, but also very glamorously? Welcome home. 1709 Broderick Street, the San Francisco home famous for its role as "exterior of Tanner house" in the Full House opening credits, is officially up for sale. Don't get too excited, though: in true Bay Area fashion, the asking price is $4.15 million. SEE ALSO: A terrifying recreation of the 'Full House' intro using 'GTA V' "1709 Broderick Street represents a unique opportunity to own a rare piece of San Francisco history," the Realtor.com description reads. Good point — but keep in mind the house looks nothing like the Full House interior, because the show was filmed on a soundstage. Read more...
