Michael Jackson's Neverland Is a Bargain

Image
It might not be a bargain but Michael Jackson’s Neverland, sans Michael’s menagerie of animals and carnival rides, is now much more affordable. First put on the market in 2015 with an asking price of $100 million, it has been relisted at $67 million for its 2,700 acres, lakeside mansion, sports courts, guest houses and famous floral clock.


Designed in 1982 by Robert Altevers, the main house at 12,000 square feet has rooms of large scale containing formal rooms, fireplaces, a comfortable but commercially functioning eat-in kitchen, hardwood floors from an 18th-century French villa, six bedrooms including a master suite complex on two levels with fireplace in sitting room, two large baths and cedar walk-in closets, one with a hidden safe room. There is a four-bedroom guesthouse, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a free-form swimming pool, large covered barbecue area, basketball court, tennis court, 50-seat movie theater with private balcony and stage, and a four-acre lake with waterfall. Long d…

Billionaire Warren Buffett's Beach House is for Sale

Image
Turned down by Harvard? Don’t feel bad. So was Warren Buffett, head of Berkshire Hathaway. But it wasn’t a death knell to his spirit or cause him to realign his goals. Like most successful people, he forged ahead.

While most people never have the epiphany that tells us what to do with our lives, Warren Buffett’s light bulb came on at the age of ten. While at lunch with his father who was a member of the New York Stock Exchange, something in their conversation lit that elusive spark that made young Buffet realize that his goal would revolve around money.

By the time he was eleven and his classmates’ main concern was who would be first up to bat at the recess baseball game, Warren made his first investment in shares of Cities Service Preferred at $38 each. Never wavering from his goal, he was bringing in almost $200 a month as a teenager in the 1940s (more than his teachers were making) by working every job he could find, including door-to-door sales and cleaning cars, for more investm…

You Can Buy Walt Disney's House for Less than a Million Dollars

“Walt Disney's Palm Springs Vacation Home”
When Roy and Walt Disney co-founded the Walt Disney Company in 1920, they had dreams of large success, but likely could not have fathomed becoming the world leader in fantasy, cartoon characters and family film. Neither would they have imagined continuing that leadership position in their artistic niche so long after their deaths. Although Roy was the silent, shy partner who addressed the financial end, Walt was the creative part of the duo and during his lifetime accrued 26 Academy Awards (still a record) for the company. Though Walt was the youngest brother, he died at the age of 65 in 1966. Roy was 73 at the time and postponed his retirement in order to open Disney World, which he later named Walt Disney World in honor of his brother. The new park transformed Orlando from a sleepy military and citrus town to America's most popular family resort vacation destination with over 50 million visitors in 2016.  
Only three years before hi…

Rent President Obama's Hawaii Christmas Vacation Home

Image
For nine years, President Barack Obama and family have enjoyed Christmas vacations at several upscale Hawaii beach homes with water views and room for staff and Secret Service agents. Soon after his historic election in 2008, President Obama settled into an annual vacation routine of golf, working out, visiting the island's military bases, beach time and keeping up with world affairs. Recently returned to Washington, D.C. after his final Hawaii trip as president, the Kailua Bay home where Obama and family stayed for four of their Christmas vacations will still be available for the first family to use. Or for anyone who can afford the $3,500 per night cost.
When the President first rented their vacation home in December of 2008, he was just a few weeks from his inauguration as the first African-American president. The stock market was collapsing, unemployment was soaring, the housing market was in the early stages of an historic collapse and 195 people had recently died in four da…

Image
The Beverly Hills home that Elvis and Priscilla bought for $400,000 when they were first married in 1967 is for sale and featured this week at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
The King will never die. Elvis Presley's music, films and the homes he has owned are legendary. He was the game changer in the music world with his own style blending rock and roll, ballads, blues and gospel, the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music with record sales over 600 million. 
Obsessed fans knew his likes, dislikes, and what food he ate. They have ogled over his and Priscilla’s honeymoon vacation house in Palm Springs and Graceland, but it was his first home with Priscilla in Trousdale Estates overlooking Los Angeles where the fans have been coming for years to write messages to Elvis on the gate door set into the garden wall.
The days of Elvis slouched on a well-worn overstuffed sofa with a plate stacked high with peanut butter and banana sandwiches on his lap are long over for this…
