Beyond the silver screen, Diaz's financial acumen is evident in her real estate endeavors. She has made strategic property investments, including a $9.5 million Beverly Hills compound in 2010. A loft in Greenwich Village, which Diaz later sold for $4 million, marked her presence in New York. Apart from a $9.5 million condo in Chelsea, Diaz and husband Benji Madden splurged on a lavish Beverly Hills mansion, complete with seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms in 2020. The couple also acquired an opulent 11,000-square-foot Montecito mansion in 2022.

Forbes reports that Diaz and entrepreneur Katherine Power found common ground in their love for wine and a shared frustration over the lack of transparency on wine labels due to existing TTB regulations. This frustration birthed Avaline wines, a revolutionary brand that not only champions 100% organic farming but also defies industry norms by detailing ingredients and nutritional facts on labels. In a mere 2.5 years since its launch in July 2020, Avaline has garnered a remarkable $20 million in sales revenue.
