Fans are calling the 2010s the decade of the Kardashians. In these years, Kim Kardashian West and her sisters rose from the ranks of reality TV stars to household names and global icons. Now the family has a lot more than just a hit TV show to their names: they have businesses, beauty brands, and even property empires to be proud of.
Kim Kardashian West in particular owns several properties across the United States that need to be seen to be believed. As her divorce from husband Kanye West continues to loom, fans wonder which of these A-listers stands to lose more if the split does go ahead. Together, they share a very impressive property empire that seems like it would be a major headache to divvy up. Keep reading to find out the details behind Kim Kardashian West’s gorgeous homes and how much her property empire is worth.
She’s Real Estate Savvy
The press has said a lot about Kim Kardashian West over the years. But one thing they can’t say? That the 40-year-old TV personality is not business savvy. As it turns out, Kardashian West is also real estate savvy, according to broker Josh Altman, who revealed the details of the Wests’ property dealings to Money.
“Kim is so savvy when it comes to real estate,” he said (via House Beautiful). “This is not her first house, this is not the first time she knocked it out of the park, because she constantly does that on every single property she buys.”
The house he was referring to was the former couple’s Bel-Air home that they bought for $11 million and sold for $17.8 million. According to Love Property, the Kardashian-Wests share a property portfolio worth nearly $100 million. This was definitely one of the career moves that made her a billionaire!
Kim’s Former Beverly Hills Home With Kris Humphries
Prior to marrying Kanye West in 2014, Kim Kardashian West lived in a few different properties, including the famous one-bedroom condo that she had when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV series just started filming.
One of the most well-known of Kardashian’s former homes was the Mediterranean-inspired Beverly Hills mansion that she shared with ex-husband Kris Humphries. The newlyweds lived there around 2011.
Interestingly, Kardashian West went on a tour of her old mansion in 2017 and found out that the new owner kept all her furniture exactly the way she left it before she moved out. According to Metro, Kardashian originally bought the Bel-Air home for $4.8 million in 2010 and sold it for an undisclosed amount.
Her First Home With Kanye
The Wests bought their first home together in 2013, the year after they went public with their relationship in 2012. As you might have guessed, this couple’s first home together was a far cry from the kind of houses that most couples buy together when they first make their relationships official.
The 9,000-square foot, six-bedroom home in Bel-Air is the one mentioned by broker Josh Altman, which the Wests bought for $11 million and sold for $17.8 million. The couple did extensive renovations on the house and lived temporarily with Kris Jenner until it was ready. This was the first purchase in their now-famous property empire.
The White Mansion In Hidden Hills
Perhaps the most famous of all Kim Kardashian West’s properties is the “white mansion” see in her ‘73 Questions’ interview with Vogue. Located in Hidden Hills, Los Angeles, the house is completely white and is set on three acres of land.
The mansion, which is thought to be their current home base, is valued at around $60 million, and while Kanye West owns the house itself, Kim Kardashian West is believed to own the land around it. This could make things tricky if the divorce goes ahead.
The Kardashian Wests also own a 3,900-square-foot house on the lot adjacent to the white house, and they also purchased another adjacent lot to increase the size of their overall compound.
The One-Bedroom SoHo Apartment
Until 2019, the Wests also owned a one-bedroom apartment in SoHo, New York. Spanning across 2,427 square feet, the apartment was originally Kanye West’s New York bachelor pad. It’s believed that the most recent price listed for the apartment was $3.99 million.
Most recently, the Kardashian Wests have been spotted staying at high-profile hotels when they visit New York City. The couple left one New York hotel together ahead of Kim Kardashian’s appearance on Saturday Night Live.
The Ranch In Wyoming
In addition to luxe mansions in the most exclusive parts of California and New York, the Wests also own property in Wyoming. In 2019, they purchased Monster Lake Ranch, which stretches out across 4,500 acres and is bordered by the scenic local mountain ranges.
The ranch currently boasts multiple cabins straddling the lake, a saloon, a restaurant, a maintenance ship, an office building, a shooting range, and equestrian facilities. Originally, the ranch was listed at $14 million, but it’s not certain how much the couple paid for it.
