Many athletes get into real estate and purchase homes for their families or as investments, but Reggie Bullock just topped them all.
The Mavericks guard/forward bought an island in Belize as a vacation spot for his friends and family and named it “Bullock Caye.”
The five-acre, $2 million island was actually purchased last year by Bullock, but the news of his purchase just went viral within the last 24 hours.
“I’ve been looking for different things to invest my money in,” Bullock told Andscape’s Marc Spears last May. “I found an opportunity down in Belize where I purchased an island that was about five acres that I am going to put resort villas on. It’s a vacation spot for me and my family where other people will be able to attend and enjoy different vacation activities.”
Bullock aims to use the island as a vacation destination with rental villas, a restaurant/bar, a basketball court and other amenities.
But even more importantly, he uses it as an educational lesson for his son, Treyson, about ownership and building generational wealth.
And that’s a lesson we could all learn from.
