Updating the Map of the 25 Most Expensive Homes for Sale in San Francisco

View as Map

March had many big sales and even more very expensive listings, so this month's map of San Francisco's most expensive homes for sale is quite different than February's. At $30M, the top spot still goes to 2724 Pacific in Pacific Heights. Quite a few of the city's most expensive abodes went missing from the MLS without a reported sale, so perhaps they're just taking a break from the market to do some spring cleaning. Let's get this party started!

The three must be sold together. Curbed SF got a tour of the property, and it's in really bad shape. Holes in the ceiling, water damage to the original silk wallcoverings, outdated everything; the whole place will need a complete restoration. If it ever does sell and get the renovation it deserves, we sincerely hope the spectacular ballroom becomes wedding central.
