Elon Musk is 48 years old this year. And he wants his freedom. So,he has started to sell his homes. Any kopiandproperty.com readers here thinking of the same thing? Selling all your properties so that you have your freedom? Okay, perhaps not during current COVID-19 situation but let’s say after COVID-19 pandemic? For those who are thinking the same, congratulations, you have reached Elon’s level of achievement.
As for me, this ‘freedom’ thought may also be on my mind but that would be after I retire and may just want to do more travelling. If that comes true, then yeah, I do not think I want to own any property. Let me be free by then. For all the rest, a better time to stop owning a property is after we retire. Sell all the properties and just stay anywhere you want. Before that happens, please keep investing and make sure property is one of it. Happy understanding and do go and test drive a TESLA. I heard it’s exhilarating.
