10Necker Island- $175,000
One of the most famous islands in the world belongs to Richard Branson. He purchased a 74 acre uninhabited island when he was 28 and his Virgin Group had been operating for just six years. A gamble at the time considering he made his first
million at the age of 25.
He reportedly paid $175,000 for the lush island, although some estimates say $270,000. OK, he’s spent a few bucks developing it but it’s still a good investment. It’s now valued at $60 million and is a popular vacation destination for some of the most famous people in the world.
