    Elon Musk, one of the world's richest men, is living in a tiny home worth just $50,000 on the SpaceX site in Texas.  Over the past year, Musk has sold most of his real estate portfolio and listed his final property last month.  The 50-year-old revealed in a tweet that he now resides in a modest rented home on his company's Boca Chica, Texas launch site, worth just $50,000 - less than the cost of a base Tesla Model S. 'My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It's kinda awesome though,' he wrote in early June, saying he also had an 'events house' in the Bay Area.

Though Musk has not confirmed the name of the company that made his home, a Boxabl unit appears to be visible on the site on Google Earth. The company's homes are tiny but stylish, set...

The 10,000-square-foot rooftop deck was offered with six cannabis plants tended by a dedicated budtender, according to the press release. But “[the buyer] did not want it so it was removed prior to closing,” the representative told The Post. The seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom home sold Friday for $44 million to financier Jeff Feinberg, former director of Soros Fund Management, whose enthusiasm for recreational drugs apparently does not match that of the developer,...
