A. in the county and 41,000 in the city in 2022. Scott Baio (@ScottBaio), May 3, 2023. “pic . twitter . com/fBCeNyhhhx.
Regarding Baio’s decision to leave, many people expressed their opinions. Others were able to see the actor’s motivation. Scott, well done, a Twitter user commented. “Both you and your family will be a lot happier. You can also go back if CA changes in the future. ”.
Another Twitter user added, “Excellent, sir.”. I wish you luck in finding a home where you and your family can live happily and comfortably. If you want space, Texas still has some to spare. Come on in; you’re welcome. ”.
A second person echoed Baio’s words and added, “Congratulations.”. As soon as he leaves, my son and I will follow. The state has lost some of its former beauty since I’ve been here in 1970. ”.
Others weren’t quite as uplifting. We will be happy to see you go, a Twitter user retorted angrily, “Considering you’ve never done anything to help out in the situation after getting wealthy off of us. Another person added, “Happily Californian here, especially knowing you’re leaving!!”.
Others made fun of the actor, with one commenter joking that the actor might be homeless given his lack of work for the past 20+ years.
You stopped being important about 30 years ago, so who cares? ” Added another person.
It’ll be simple to pack up your tent and shopping cart, said another person who wasn’t pleased with his post. “Since you too have been without a career for 40 years!”.
In a sign that he means business, the 62-year-old actor has listed his Woodland Hills residence for sale. The property is valued at $3,85,000,000. This large house measures 6,300 square feet and has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a home theater, and other amenities. In 2010, the home’s purchase price was $1.85 million.
Scott Baio is merely adding his name to the long list of famous people from Hollywood who have moved from California to other states. Mark Wahlberg, Joe Rogan, and Matthew McConaughey are some well-known individuals who recently relocated from California.
According to McConaughey, he intends to move back to Texas in December 2020, where he was born. His main motivation for moving was his desire for his kids to grow up with his family and share his “values.”.
Joe Rogan employed a similar tactic in August 2020. He chose to move his family away from Los Angeles because of the “insane” traffic and sky-high rent. Also moving to Texas was the well-known podcaster. After selling his Beverly Hills property for $30 million in April 2021, Mark Wahlberg moved to Ohio. It’s possible that the actor’s decision was influenced by the fact that he has family in the area and owns a Chevrolet company there.
