While the transaction volume of buying and selling in San Francisco may have cooled off a bit in 2016, it was still a very hot year for the market. Some of the most expensive properties throughout the city sold for record prices as buyers brought cash for some very historic and unique properties. Here’s a look at some of the most expensive homes sold in San Francisco for 2016.
2250 Vallejo – $21.8 million
Pacific Heights property, bought by a 30-year-old billionaire, this was the most expensive home sold in San Francisco last year. The property was sold in October.
2476 Broadway – $18.1 million
Another Pacific Heights home, this property was the most expensive sold in the city for a short time. It was listed in May for $22 million and was sold in October. It used to be a duplex with a baby-blue exterior. Now, the home has a more modern look and it’s no longer a duplex.
164 Sea Cliff – $17.8 million
Sea Cliff neighborhood home designed by Albert Farr, this waterfront property sold in November for $17.8 million. It was originally listed in September for $18.9 million and ended up third on the list for most expensive homes sold last year.
3800 Washington – $15.75 million
Presidio Heights home that has had a rough few years. After being purchased by a tech exec, it ended up in bankruptcy court after renovations had already begun, leaving the home in a rather un-financeable and, shall we say, hard to show state. Which didn’t stop a squatter from stealing art during the bankruptcy proceedings. Rumored potential buyers include Taylor Swift, and this property finally sold in 2016. For less than the 2007 sale price.
2755 Fillmore – $13.25 million
This property was bought in 2013, renovated and hit the market again this year. The renovations allowed for a quicker sale this time around and a higher price.
Other expensive homes sold in San Francisco for 2016 include:
Millennium Tower Penthouse – $13 million
2480 Broadway – $11.7 million
2456 Filbert – $11.4 million
3610 Washington – $11.3 million
2600 Jackson – $11 million
All of these beautiful homes were sold during 2016. It will be interesting to see which homes make the most expensive list for 2017.
