Rick Harrison: Houses and Cars
Harrison owned a home boasting 8845 square feet, comprising five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and three extra rooms.
Located at 2556 Red Arrow Drive in Red Rock Country Club in Summerlin, Rick Harrison listed the house on sale around March of 2019 for $3.99 million and was finally sold for $3.15 million in a deal that happened on March 19, 2021.
The house had really cool features, including a Control4 home automation system, security cameras, elevator, resort-style backyard, 11 car garage for his cars, and many more.
Rick also owns a single-family residence in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a total of 3932 square feet of living space. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 1 half bathroom.
Bought in 1998 for $85,000, the property’s current market value is about $445,277, as per zillow.com.
Rick resides with his wife in the northwest valley in Clark County, where he recently bought a property measuring 4500 square feet. He plans on adding 4000 square feet to the existing property for his garage.
He also owns a home in the remote mountains of Oregon, where he spends over 5 months every year during the winter season away from the cameras and spotlight.
As a regular driver of the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor, which he rates 10 out of 10, he sure has added other valuable cars to his collection over time.
The 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor has a market value of $24,900 to $59,000, and consists of a really tall suspension, and is an ideal car for off-road trips.
The next car to make its way to Rick’s collection is the 1966 Imperial Crown Convertible, passed down to him from his father, Richard Benjamin Harrison, when he died in 2018. Depending on the car’s condition, the market value can go up to $29,000 at present.
The 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe is Rick Harrison’s favorite car that he has back at his home. He has been working on this car for over 12 years, and the work is still in process.
The 1973 Volkswagon Thing was the car he learned to drive in. His mom taught him all about driving with this car. But, the car got damaged beyond repair, so it could not stay with Harrison for long.
But, he always dreamt of getting another Volkswagon Thing, and the History Channel gave him the VW he wanted, and since then, he has it in his collection.
Besides the aforementioned models, Rick also possesses a ’68 Mustang GT Fastback, a ’47 Power Wagon, ’48 Power Wagon, a ’68 Trump, a ’73 Jeep, and a ’40 Indian Chief.
But, the most honorable mention probably goes to his Black Porsche Panamera with its current market price of $200,000.
Rick Harrison’s passion for cars can be easily seen from the great collections he has with him. As per his recent interview, he has 29 cars in his possession.
Rick Harrison: Lifestyle and Vacation
Rick seems to have a rather lavish lifestyle with a net worth of over $8 million and a huge car collection.
Before selling his Red Rock Country Club Home in early 2021, he and his wife spent over $600,000 renovating the whole house after buying it in 2001.
Being the famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop owner, he might own other valuable assets but sadly have not been publicized yet.
The more we would like to know about the vacation destinations of the famous TV reality star, Richard Kevin Harrison, the very little has been known about him.
When Rick is off the grid from celebrity life, he likes to go to remote mountains in Oregon, where he owns a house and the entire five months of winter he spends there annually.
He generally favors staying out of the limelight for these five months and lives a rather rugged lifestyle.
He also shared in an interview that he carries a chainsaw in his truck along with him on his journey to the mountain to clear the fallen trees off the path.

In addition, he donated the money made from the sale of the tiara of the former first lady Ida McKinley to the ‘Epilepsy Foundation of Nevada.’
At his father’s funeral, he asked the guests to donate to the Epilepsy Foundation instead of offering the flowers to his dead father. This shows his compassion towards the people who have Epilepsy and his role towards the foundation.

Rick Harrison: Career
Before rising to TV fame with the Pawn Stars, Rick had rather mixed life experiences. In 1981, he used to work part-time in his father’s ‘Gold and Silver Coin Shop.’
Five years later, they shifted their shop to Fermont street but sadly lost their lease just after two years.
In 1989, Rick partnered in business with his father and became a Gold and Silver Pawn Shop co-owner in Las Vegas.
Harrison was keen on finding a producer for his reality show involving his pawnshop. He got such an idea for the show after his pawnshop was previously featured on the show ‘Insomniac with Dave Attell’ in 2003.
It took him until 2008 to finally get the production company. Then, finally, ‘Leftfield Pictures,’ in 2008, came with the proposal regarding the show Rick was dreaming of creating, and at last, ‘History Channel’ came forward to air the show.
And at last, the first episode aired on July 19, 2009. The show has aired for over 17 seasons, with 577 episodes in total.
Rick also produced some episodes of Pawn Stars.
