Chinese billionaire William Ding paid $29m for one of Musk's mansions in Bel Air.
Meanwhile, Kirill Evstratov, the CEO of financial tech company Unlimint, got his hands on Musk's Hillsborough, northern California estate for $30m.
After his declaration to sell his properties, Musk downsized from his many mansions to a rented home in Texas near the rocket launch site for SpaceX.
My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It's kinda awesome, though," he tweeted in June 2021.

Maybe his desire to get rid of his property is unsurprising given Musk's on and off again partner Grimes revealed to Vanity Fairthat the billionaire is a minimalist.
"Bro lives at times below the poverty line…To the point where I was like, 'Can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there's no security, and I'm eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?'" she told the outlet.
Grimes - whose real name is Claire Boucher - said that Musk is investing in various business ventures.
"People are like, 'He's hoarding money!' No, he's spending everything on [research and development]."
