NBA legend and African-American billionaire Michael Jordan has solidified his standing not only among the world’s Black billionaires but also among the globe’s wealthiest individuals. He now ranks as one of the world’s 1,000 richest individuals.

Forbes reports that Jordan, with a net worth of $3 billion, secures a coveted spot on “The Forbes 400,” a list featuring America’s 400 wealthiest individuals. This achievement makes history, as he becomes the first professional athlete to join the ranks of the nation’s elite billionaires.

Jordan‘s billion-dollar wealth is primarily a result of his lucrative endorsements and successful business ventures, rather than his on-court earnings during his 16-year NBA career, which amounted to $94 million. Additionally, his extensive real estate holdings, valued at millions of dollars, significantly contribute to his $3-billion fortune.

The key to Jordan’s off-the-court financial success lies in a multitude of lucrative endorsements and business partnerships, including collaborations with industry giants such as McDonald’s, Gatorade, Hanes, and notably, Nike, where his annual royalty check recently reached an astounding $260 million.

His property portfolio, featuring luxurious mansions in Chicago, Utah, and Florida, serves as both a symbol of his incredible success and a testament to his discerning taste and penchant for the extraordinary. These opulent mansions firmly establish his status among billionaires who own luxurious assets in prime U.S. cities.

Here are the four luxurious mansions that constitute Jordan’s remarkable property portfolio:

1. Florida Mansion

  • Property Value: $25 million
  • Acquired by Michael Jordan in 2012 for a modest $4.8 million, this sprawling mega-mansion underwent an extensive renovation and transformation, costing $7 million, resulting in an impressive 28,000 square feet of modern design that reflects the impeccable taste of the basketball legend. Nestled within The Bears Club, a highly exclusive and heavily guarded community known for housing high-profile residents, Jordan’s Florida mansion boasts its very own golf course, personally designed by the golfing legend, Jack Nicklaus. The residence features a cutting-edge media room, a staggering 11 bedrooms, and 11.5 bathrooms. Presently, this stunning mansion is valued at $25 million, making it the most valuable home owned by the NBA legend.

2. Highland Park Mansion

  • Property Value: $14.9 million
  • In 1991, Jordan, like many average homeowners in the nineties, purchased a lot in Highland Park, Illinois, where he erected a 56,000-square-foot mansion completed in 1995. This custom-built seven-acre compound is a testament to luxury living and includes a tennis court, infinity pool, putting green, basketball court, and a customized No. 23 gate, among numerous other amenities. Initially listed for $29 million in 2012, the property now awaits its discerning owner at a value of $14.9 million. Despite its grandeur, this mansion remains unsold, with Jordan incurring over $130,000 in annual property taxes since listing it in 2012, totaling more than $2.5 million.

3. Park City Mansion

  • Property Value: $7.5 million
  • Nestled into a picturesque hillside just outside the ski haven of Park City, Utah, Jordan’s Park City Mansion is a nearly 10,000-square-foot residence with panoramic views of the Wasatch Mountain range. Built into a hillside overlooking the Glenwild Golf Course and the surrounding mountains, this grand mountain property spans almost four acres in the Silver Summit area. The stone facade and copper roof allow the home to seamlessly blend into its natural surroundings, while expansive windows provide breathtaking views of the surrounding valley. The NBA legend listed this palatial Park City home on the market for $7.5 million in 2019.

4. North Carolina Lakefront Mansion

  • Property Value: $2.8 million
  • In 2013, Jordan, who spent most of his childhood in North Carolina and played for the North Carolina Tar Heels, acquired a stunning lakefront home in Cornelius, North Carolina, for $2.8 million. The home, built in 1993, boasts 12,310 square feet of luxury living space, featuring six bedrooms, eight baths, and a two-story great room that opens out to a terraced patio housing an enormous pool and spa. Positioned on a lot extending into Lake Norman and overlooking the seventh hole of the Peninsula Golf Club, the mansion includes an expansive basement with room for a personal gym and entertainment center. This North Carolina gem is a testament to Jordan’s enduring connection with the Tar Heel State.
