We’ve made a lot of videos about the richest billionaires in the world, the wealthiest CEOs on this planet, the wealthiest people to ever live and the many many things they own.
But today we're going to be looking at one of the most unique billionaires around, Warren Edward Buffett.
Known for looking like everyone's run of the mill great uncle, he’s gained a reputation not only for being incredibly rich but being quite frugal as well.
So today we'll be looking at Warren Buffett and the sort of homes owned by the man deemed the most frugal billionaires in the world. And we’ll see if he really pinches as many pennies as they say.
Warren Buffett is an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist, He’s also the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. He has a net worth of 101 billion dollars and is in the top 10 richest men on the planet, so where on earth would accusations of frugality come from?
Well, it might have something to do with the fact that he doesn’t spend his massive amount of wealth buying the fastest most luxurious cars or living in super megamansions, nor does he live the exaggerated lifestyle typically expected of billionaires in the movies.
He's called frugal because of the relatively low key ways he chooses to spend his billions, since he isn’t jetting around in supercars or sailing Yachts big enough to fit the population of a small town after all.
For example, Instead of flying a crew of gourmet chefs from France whenever he’s feeling peckish, he would rather go to McDonald's for breakfast every day, where he spends no more than 3 dollars 17 cents... hopefully not including tips
He also used a flip phone for several years before finally upgrading to an iPhone 11, call it frugality or finally understanding technology, either way, Warren Buffett is certainly a unique one.
So what kind of house would such a penny-pinching billionaire live in?
