Pop supernova Taylor Swift may have sung that her reputation has never been worse, but not so when it comes to her real estate holdings.

The 33-year-old, 12-time Grammy winner has amassed a U.S. residential real estate portfolio worth more than $150 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Her (known) holdings span as far north as Rhode Island, as far west as Beverly Hills and as south as Nashville, Tennessee, where she originally found fame at the age of 14 as a country artist. 

Here’s a rundown of what she currently owns:

  • California: After buying two four-bedroom houses in Beverly Hills (which she subsequently sold in 2018), Swift bought the Goldwyn estate in 2015 for $25 million, according to the Journal. The 11,000-square-foot house, built by legendary producer Samuel Goldwyn, sits on 2 acres, the outlet reported. Swift got an amazing deal, according to real-estate professionals, with real-estate agent Josh Flagg saying the estate could fetch up to $70 million if it were listed today.

  • Rhode Island: Swift famously purchased an 11,700-square-foot mansion, which was known as the Holiday House, at 16 Bluff Avenue in Westerly for a record $17.75 million, according to the Journal. The luxe home has seven bedrooms and sits on about 5.25 acres, with 700 feet of shoreline and a pool. A local real estate agent estimated the property would sell for about $30 million if it were listed today.
  • New York City: She famously sang about her digs on Cornelia Street, but Swift owns about properties worth $45 million elsewhere in Tribeca. In 2014, she bought from director Peter Jackson two penthouse units in the Sugar Loaf building for $19.95 million, and combined them into an 8,000-square-foot duplex, the outlet reported. She wasn’t done combining properties. In 2017 she bought a three-story, 27-foot wide townhouse for $18 million, and paid $9.75 million for a 3,500-square-foot apartment on the second floor of the Sugar Loaf building. She then connected the two properties, using the townhouse as a garage so she could go directly to her apartment, the Journal reported. “It’s probably the most expensive garage there is,” real estate agent Andrew Azoulay told the Journal. 
  • Tennessee: Swift was just 19 years old when she made her first big splash in the real estate market, paying $2 million through a trust for a luxe condominium near Music Row in Nashville in 2009. Shortly after, the trust bought a one-bedroom unit below it for $387,000. In 2011, she bought the Northumberland Estate for $2.5 million. The estate has a 7,700-square-foot home on about 6 acres, according to the Journal. Swift’s Nashville properties are worth roughly $8 million, according to a local real estate professional. 

That Swift has amassed that portfolio at the age of 33 is unsurprising given that she’s a global phenomenon whose concert tickets for her upcoming “Eras Tour” are only slightly more difficult to purchase than one of her homes.
