San Francisco “Luxury” Real Estate Market Report

It’s funny, for the sake of talking market dynamics and data, we often refer to anything over $1,000,000 as “Luxury Home Sales”…at least most of the nation does, and so we’re kinda forced to as well. Even though we’re sharing these charts with you, and we’re clearly calling this a Luxury Market update, we’re starting to wonder at which point the über competitive price range of $1-2M stops becoming “Luxury”. I mean, really! A million bucks is still A LOT of money, isn’t it? So then, is a 1000 square foot condo that sells for $1,000,000 (Austin Powers voice), and doesn’t come with parking, a view, linen service, or a pool…luxury? (Yes, said condos already exist here.) Something to ponder on this Monday morning. Either way, have a look:

Millennium Tower, San Francisco California, “Top 10 Residential Buildings In The World”

There’s been a lot said from yours truly about Millennium Tower in the past. I’ve watched her grow and shared my stories and photos with all of you over the years. Millennium Tower was erected, sold like hotcakes during the pre 2009 boom, sold not like hotcakes during the bust…but she’s back, and buyers are gobbling up her remaining inventory at breakneck speed.

Recently named as one of the Top Ten Residential Buildings In The World by Worth Magazine, and featured in the Wall Street Journal in an article about Penthouse (not the magazine…the top floor residence) owner Tom Perkins (of Silicon Valley Fame), Millennium Tower sits alongside locations like One Hyde Park in London, Linked Hybrid in Beijing, and One57 in New York as an address many of the who’s who of big money and luxury proudly call home (or second home). Not impressed with that lineup?

Some other noteworthy residents rumored to have roamed the Club Level Amenity floor: Carmen Policy (San Francisco 49ers); Joe Montana (San Francisco 49ers); Peter Thiel (PayPal Co-founder); Russell Coutts (America’s Cup Skipper – legend in Sailing), and that’s just to name a few…

One bedroom units are completely sold out (from the sales office, you can occasionally grab a resale), 85% of the entire inventory has been sold, and your entry level price point is going to be around $1,600,000, but you gotta trust me when I say, you definitely get what you pay for (except deeded parking…in some cases, but that’s a different story).

The building is swank, debonair, and delightful in every sense of the word, and it’s certainly an address in San Francisco you can be proud of owning.
