It’s not easy for many people to afford to buy a home in Arlington. It’s obviously a lot harder to afford to buy every home in Arlington — but believe it or not, there are at least two people who could pull it off.
There are 75,317 homes in Arlington with an aggregate value of $43.4 billion, the report says. Warren Buffett, with his $65.5 billion, or Bill Gates, with $78.4 billion, according to Forbes, could theoretically buy all the residential real estate there is to buy in Arlington.
The Koch brothers, with $86 billion in total net worth, could buy the county twice over. The Walton family, of Walmart fame, could buy Arlington more than three times over with their $154.8 billion.
Only the Walton family could buy all of the 209,092 homes in the District of Columbia; the District’s homes are valued in aggregate at $109.2 billion, according to Redfin.
