Jeff Bezos is just like anyone else. When buying a home, he had to take out a mortgage.
Yes, even though the Amazon founder is worth $146.6 billion, he helped finance the two homes he just purchased for his parents with a $5 million loan from Bank of America.
According to a report in The Real Deal, a company linked to the Bezos Family Foundation purchased one of the homes in Coral Gables, Florida, for $34 million on July 22.
This home is almost $13,000 square feet and is loaded with bells and whistles. The CEO of PetsMD previously owned the house.
The other adjacent home is set to close soon for $40 million. This one is not as big, but even more spectacular. It is 8,7000 square feet and has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. There is speculation that Bezos might crash in that home while visiting his parents in Florida.
