In 2020, Elon Musk revealed that he is "selling almost all physical possessions" and that he "will own no house." Since then, the billionaire confirmed the sale of his real estate and other private properties.
According to reports, Musk is currently living on a tiny prefab home in Boca Chica, Texas.
Just one stipulation on sale: I own Gene Wilder’s old house. It cannot be torn down or lose any its soul.

Being one of the richest men in the world, Musk previously received a lot of criticisms for his wealth. In response, he made a surprising pledge and sold most of his properties. Now, he is said to be renting his home from SpaceX!

Elon Musk House Is a Boxabl: Tesla CEO Living in a $50,000 Home!
Elon Musk's house was first teased as a Twitter comment. User Matt Wallace briefly pointed out that "Musk lives very modestly by billionaire standard," which gained a reply from Musk who said that: "my primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It's kinda awesome though."

Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen some day.
This information was immediately linked to an order in November 2020, when Boxabl announced a "top secret customer" on Casita, Boca Chica. Insider highlighted the prefab house specs, which include a lot of interior photos!
Note that Boxabl was already getting a lot of popularity even before Musk's involvement. Their $49,500 prefab house, with a size of 375-square-foot space, reportedly has a waitlist of over 47,000 customers.
Demand for their units is incredibly massive because the prefab house has many exciting features to share. First, it could be transported at an 8.5 feet compact size and immediately assembled in a matter of hours. Its interior design is clean and modern. It has complete household furnishings, including a well-equipped kitchen. The prefab house is also stackable to a two-floor model.
Their official YouTube channel posted a quick video tour on one house installed in Texas. Internet rumors pointed out that this could be the same house Elon Musk would take over, with a key highlight on 2:04 featuring a drawer filled with "rockets and spaceships." This, however, is full speculation with no confirmation from the SpaceX CEO himself.
