I would say not more than 3. Since I love being near water, somewhere close to it or viewing it. 

Some of the places that he owns are a little over the top for me but were great in 1900's wealth.  100 room house is a little much for me.

I'd have one in each of my favorite vacation spots.  I'd probably get a little place in Vegas, one in Dallas/Fort Worth, one in NYC, one in Norway and one in Ibiza.  Then I'd spend my time between all of them, probably living in Ibiza right now... for some reason...  maybe that's the club/trance music I have on talking right now.

I can answer this question right away, and don't even need to give it any thought - HA! - John Bear!  For me it would be two homes, a house on the mainland, where we currently live in AZ, and a second home (a condo) on the Islands, preferably Maui.  So, it would be 2 homes.

I would buy a house next door to Donald, then build a wall 30 feet high around my property so that the illegal landscapers can not go on my property and have Donald pay for it. OK seriously, I would buy a farm near Knoxville Tennessee, and maybe one other place, like Bend or Newport Oregon or somewhere in New England. But nothing over the top. I still want to be who I am now, and not show off

7-Since that's my lucky number, but I can think of only three places:

1) Ocean front in Hawaii, likely on Oahu's North Shore.

2) Lakefront entertaining home built for sister's family, but a place for me to crash when there. Likely in Oakland County, Michigan. Have the rough drawings for this one.

3) In Southern California, NON waterfront. Would consider building on large lot in Rancho Sante Fe, A place in West Los Angeles or in Coastal Orange County.

All homes to be custom built new ones.

At one time did consider a new home overseas, but with the regulation and local corruption, I withdrew my interest. I would be only a renter of overseas property after some thought.
