How many properties does Bernie own?

According to the Daily Mail, the senator owns three properties.

He owns a $405,000 four bedroom home in Vermont alongside a one-bedroom apartment in Washington, estimated to be worth $700,000.

He also owns a lakeside cabin, once part of Burlington College also in Vermont – where his wife, Jane was a former president.

The couple's acquisition of the cabin has been the centre of some controversy after critics blamed Jane Sanders for piloting a scheme to drive millions of dollars into the college's campus – which saw the university fold.

The couple then snapped up the cabin after the school shut in 2016.

The Sanders say they purchased the wood cabin with inheritance money, but records discovered by VTDigger  suggest the amount Jane received from her parents was considerably less than the price of the cabin.
