Jeff Bezos’ $900 Million Real Estate Empire: From Beverly Hills To ‘Billionaire Bunkers’


Jeff Bezos has been on something of a real estate splurge in recent weeks. We felt it was high time to do a round-up of his fast-growing property empire.

Second-richest man on earth, founder of Amazon, CEO of Blue Origin and, it seems, real estate mogul: Jeff Bezos has added $600 million worth of property in Florida’s new hotspot, Indian Creek Island, in a matter of months. Beefing up an already massive property portfolio, Bezos now has so many houses to his name that we wanted to do a neat and tidy round-up of them all.

Bezos’s most recent acquisition was a third home on Miami’s highly exclusive aforementioned island. Joining two multimillion-dollar estates he purchased there the previous year, reports suggest he plans to live in this latest home while demolishing and then combining the other two properties.

Bezos announced his decision to relocate from Seattle — his home for over three decades — at the end of last year and now boasts a number of properties across the United States. In 2021, Bezos set a record for the most expensive purchase in Maui, Hawaii, when he acquired a 14-acre compound for $78 million USD.

Bringing the total value of his real estate holdings to a staggering $578 million USD (c. $872 million AUD), Bezos also owns several properties in Washington state, New York City, sprawling estates in California, a ranch in Texas, and properties in Washington, D.C.

Here’s a full breakdown of Jeff Bezos’s real estate holdings.
