I think that is the most humble thing a millionaire could ever do for less fortunate people. Maybe some of the rich people in Grand Junction or in the great u.s.a. could do the same ,but i really don't see any millionaires wanting to help any less fortunate people here.

Finally, someone else is recieving the joy that comes from giving, and sharing. I'm sure there are lots of "givers" in the world, just not on that large of scale. God Bless this person.

Great now we all gotta stand by and watch this poor family struggle to pay $150 a month for rent. You guys are looking at this as a good deed. Noone is asking why this man doesn't want to stay in his own home. You all make me sick.

I'd like to see the before and after photos - now and then in a year or so. Let's see if these properties hold their values. Not that the owner cares, but I'll bet his neighbors do.

You people make me sick, always thinking with your emotions so as to make yourselves feel better. You're pathetic losers - victims and parasites.

I'm just curious what makes these people underprivileged - is it "the man" holding them down or is it education, or the lack there of. Maybe it's laziness who knows but to think that this is somehow doing them a favor is just foolish.

Maybe the government should make us all equal - we can all live in mansions and drive Bentleys. What a beautiful world it would be and we wouldn't even have to work for it. You know, like liberal utopia.

I gotta say I understand the neighbors concerns but with all do respect their rich as well. To be living in that neighborhood, and what, is the value of their 2 million dollar home going to fall to 1.8 million, please. As far as lroy79 goes how can 1 person stay in 8 multi million dollar homes? Maybe he is just trying to find something he can do to help out some low budget families get back on their feet. This man is, in my opinion, trying to give back to the community in his own way. Way to go buddy, keep it up!!!

Considering this man could have just as easily bought several smaller homes at the same price, and given them away, perhaps this smells of tax write-off to me.
However, good idea.

That just goes to show that there is a GOD, because only a man of GOD could do onto others as he would have done onto him. That is truly a blessing and yes we do need people like him here in the US.

If you were a trillionaire, you would probably know how to spell it, and you probably wouldn't be living in Aurora.

Those families are homeless, yeah, doesn't make them any special that they can't get jobs. One person per family can work at McDonalds and get more than $150 a month for rent. The reason why they were homeless isn't because of no job, it's because rent is so expensive on O'ahu.

The owner can do what ever the hell he wants with his houses, not necessarily mansions, because some of them are cottages. And how do you know whether the family doesn't have to work, maybe they were working while they were homeless and just couldn't afford the rent. I would think they would need jobs considering they still have to pay rent. The neighbors may not like it, but it's his property and he can rent it to whomever he wants, and you want us to feel sorry for the neighbors who are rich also, yeah we may feel a bit sorry that their 3 million dollar home is going to go down a few ten thousand dollars, but I would rather see homeless off the beaches then see those home values spike up with every passing day.

I agree, I hope these families don't take advantage of him and destroy his property just because he says he doesn't mind.
