Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West will make a combined $222 million this year alone and are collectively worth over $500 million, according to Forbes. Their high net worths allow them to dabble in the luxury real estate market.
Earlier this month, TMZ reported that West bought a $14 million ranch in Wyoming, 75 miles east of Yellowstone National Park.
Known as Monster Lake Ranch, the property is said to span more than 1,400 acres.
The ranch features a restaurant and saloon, horse barns, and a state-of-the-art shooting range.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Kardashian West said she envisions spending summers and weekends there. She's already given a glimpse of the ranch on Instagram.
That isn't the pair's only vacation home. Last winter, West bought a $14 million condo in the luxurious Faena House on Miami Beach as a Christmas present for his wife.
The four-bedroom, 4,700-square-foot South Beach condo has floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace.
West is also interested in becoming a developer. Earlier this summer, he attempted to create an affordable housing development on 300 acres of his land in Calabasas.
He built "Star Wars"-inspired domes, but didn't have the necessary permits. As a result, the city of Los Angeles asked him to secure the permits or tear down the structures. West maintained that they were temporary prototypes but agreed to tear them down.
"I'm going to be one of the biggest real estate developers of all time, like what Howard Hughes is to aircraft and what Henry Ford was to cars," West told Charlamagne Tha God in a 2018 radio interview. "Anybody who's been to any of my cribs knows that I'm super into developing homes."
West and Kardashian West bought a home in Hidden Hills for $20 million in 2014. They then spent four years and another $20 million renovating it. The home is worth $60 million now, according to Kardashian West's mom, Kris Jenner.
The mansion is their primary residence and spans 15,667 square feet. The couple has always been particularly private about showing the home on social media, but Kardashian West filmed an installment of Vogue's "73 Questions" series at the home in April 2019.
In the video, Kardashian West described their monochromatic, airy space as "a minimal monastery."
The video showcases unbelievable features like flat sinks and floor to ceiling windows that bring in incredible natural light.
The couple previously lived in a 9,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion bought in 2013 for $11 million. They sold the home in 2017 for $17.8 million to Ukrainian billionaire Marina Acton. She later sold the house for $14 million in 2018.
Kardashian West reportedly bought a $1.6 million condo in the area in 2017. Her mom also bought two condos in the same luxury building.
West also previously owned a condo in New York City. He bought one unit in a Soho apartment building in 2004 and combined it with an adjacent unit in 2006 to achieve the current 2,427-square-foot open layout.
The condo was sold in 2018 and just went back on the market for $4.7 million.
The monochromatic apartment plays into the couple's sleek, minimalistic approach perfectly.
