Millionaire Offers His Mansions To Victims Of Texas Tornados
Homes waiting for sale or investment sit empty and unused until they are bought. One very smart businessman wants to put them to use! Rob Sturgeon, a Texas millionaire and property investor, is opening two mansions as temporary housing for families who lost their homes in the state’s recent storms. The payment due for rent? One dollar per month.
His company mainly deals with commercial real estate, but he had a pair of two million dollar mansions purchased as investments that are currently up for sale. He says the idea to offer them as housing “just overtook me.”
“I was just thinking about having those two big homes,” Sturgeon told KDAF News. “It doesn’t make sense for them to be vacant when somebody could be using them that obviously would have a great need.”
Even though the properties are 2 hours away from the Dallas area he has had over 70 people apply. His plan is to let one family live in each mansion for up to three months, but Sturgeon says he could extend that if he still hasn’t found a buyer. The houses have luxurious amenities which he is hoping will bring joy to their lives!
