Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be fulfilling a tweeted promise earlier in May to offload most of his real estate and ultimately "own no house." He still has a net worth of some $38 billion (R706 billion).

"I am selling almost all physical possessions," Musk tweeted on May 1. "Will own no house."

On Wednesday, Musk, who recently reopened his electric-car factory in defiance of a local California ordinance, listed four more Los Angeles-area properties as "for sale by owner," Bloomberg reported. The real estate has a collective asking price of $62.5 million (R1.1 billion).

Musk also listed a mansion in England for $35 million (R650 million).

The listings come days after the South African businessman began accepting offers on two Bel Air mansions. Their combined asking price: $39.5 million (R733 million).

As Musk recently explained on a podcast, "Possessions kind of weigh you down" - politically, he implied. "They're kind of an attack vector, you know? People say, 'Hey, billionaire, you've got all this stuff.' Well, now I don't have stuff. Now what are you going to do?"
