Who Lives In This Simple House Will Absolutely Drop Your Jaw…


Warren Buffett, a well-known billionaire and investor, is famous for his frugal lifestyle. Despite having immense wealth, he continues to live in a modest home that he purchased for $31,500 in Omaha, Nebraska, back in 1958. The house, which is now worth an estimated $652,619, is 6,570 square feet with five bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Despite being a wealthy man, Buffett is content with his unpretentious lifestyle and simple living.

Buffett’s home is by no means a luxurious mansion that one would expect from a billionaire. In fact, he has fences and security cameras around his property for added security. However, his house is not ostentatious and does not reflect his immense wealth. He believes that his home is the third-best investment he has ever made, and he likes it just the way it is.

In an interview with BBC’s Evan Davis in “The World’s Greatest Moneymaker,” Buffett expressed his satisfaction with his modest lifestyle.

He said, “I’m happy there. I’d move if I thought I’d be happier someplace else.” He continued, “How would I improve my life by having 10 houses around the globe? If I wanted to become a superintendent of housing… I could have as a profession, but I don’t want to manage 10 houses, and I don’t want somebody else doing it for me, and I don’t know why the hell I’d be happier.”

Buffett has a very practical approach to his no-frills home ownership, saying, “I’m warm in the winter, I’m cool in the summer, it’s convenient for me. I couldn’t imagine having a better house.” To him, there is no need to have extravagant homes worldwide. The one he has is already more than enough.

In a 2012 interview, Buffett explained that he lives and has an office in Omaha because he was born there and has always been happy there. Even though he has lived in different places like Washington D.C. and New York, Omaha is where his heart is. He has lived in the same house for 53 years and has been in the same building for 50 years. For him, material possessions do not equate to happiness, and he feels that some people are possessed by their possessions rather than the other way around.

Buffett’s simple and frugal lifestyle has attracted many admirers. On social media, people have commented on how impressed they are with the billionaire’s modest accommodations.

One commenter noted, “This is so nice to see that when you can have whatever you want, one can be satisfied with just some modest things. Knowing that you can and helping others is much more gratifying.”

Another commented, “Yeah, well, considering that he’s worth billions, he could have spent half a billion easy on a house… with a ranch… on a private island.”

Buffett’s modest lifestyle serves as a lesson to everyone that money cannot buy happiness. Even though he is a billionaire, he has found happiness and contentment in his modest home. Unlike many other millionaires and billionaires who flaunt their wealth, Buffett is a humble and unpretentious gentleman who knows the value of a simple life.
