Winning the award for 3rd most pricey home on the San Francisco MLS is the Jackson Street abode you see above, nearly 9,000 square feet with 6 beds and 6.5 baths. Readers should note the home’s listing price, $17.5 million, breaks down to asking $1,984 per square foot. Not that this would scare luxury buyers in San Francisco; the home itself went pending just six days after it listed, according to Redfin property records. We don’t know yet what it will actually sell for, but we doubt it’s much less than what the sellers ask given the alacrity of the transaction.
Coming in 2nd is this palatial affair hulking over Washington St.
This property is so big, it has two MLS listing pages, one for the main house and one for the guest house. Neoclassical outside and over-the-top on the inside, the home offers almost 18,000 square feet, 8 beds, 7 baths, and the aforementioned guest house at an additional 2,600 square feet. All this, plus a corner lot Presidio Heights location, set this home at an astonishing $21 million. Not so astonishing anymore, maybe, not after Yammer founder David Sacks paid $20 million for the not even finished 2845 Broadway. However, no one has rushed to snap up this one, hot luxury market or not. The home listed for $25M in May of 2012 and was reduced in March to $21M.
Coming in 1st is this home, lined up with traditional billionaire mansions on Broadway, but looking quite different from its peers.
We can only thus far see plans for the interior and multiple floors, but the exterior rendering is remarkable, as is the view, and the price. Asking $28,950M, 2712 Broadway is officially the most expensive home listed on the SF public MLS. It offers 6 beds, 6 baths in 11,607 square feet, which calculates to $2,494 per square foot. Too pricey even for that stretch of street? Time will tell.
Buyers want, and can afford, high-end
Meanwhile, luxury properties enjoy a continued popularity in 2013. Paragon Real Estate Group shows this in a recent 2nd quarter report:
How high is too high?
When, and at what price, will buyers balk? Or is the appetite for luxury in San Francisco insatiable?
