      Updated: Tech Mogul David Sacks Pays $20M For Home on San Francisco’s Famed ‘Billionaire’s Row’

      David Sacks

      San Francisco, CA

      Most Known For

      Uber-successful tech mogul who was once CEO of Yammer and COO of PayPal

      Home Stats

      17,500 square foot main home and 6,000 square foot guest house, Unfinished interiors

      Price

      $20,000,000

      Tech mogul David Sacks has just paid $20 million for 2845 Broadway Street in San Francisco, making it the one of the most expensive homes ever sold in San Francisco. Sacks and his wife Jacqueline are the proud new owners of the partially-completed home on ‘Billionaire’s Row.’ The estate was previously owned by Peter Sperling, who made his fortune and earned his right to live on the prestigious block by helping build the The University of Phoenix online education empire.

      Sacks and his family will fit right into the neighborhood: earlier this year, he sold his company, Yammer, to Microsoft for $1.2 billion. Prior to Yammer, Sacks was COO at PayPal and founder of Geni.com, a family tree building and networking site. Just one month after selling Yammer, Sacks predicted “the end of Silicon Valley as we know it.” Perhaps this hunch is what convinced him to settle his young family into the historic Pacific Heights neighborhood, a part of town also enjoyed by nearby residents like the Getty family, Larry Ellison and Marc Pincus.

      Originally listed unfinished for the astronomical price of $65 million, the Sacks’ new home came on and off the market with drastic price chops for the greater part of six years. According to Socketsite, 2845 Broadway was part of a two-parcel site, which also included 2940 Pacific, that was purchased by the Sperlings for $32 million in 2002. The cost of construction for the 17,500 square foot home and 6,000 square foot guest house exceeded $20 million, and the “buzz among local brokers” is that it will cost upwards of $10 million to finish the home. Sacks better dig deep into the Microsoft money to make it happen.

      Update:

      We had previouly heard buzz among local “in-the-know” brokers that the purchase price would be $34.5 million. This is not the case and our source was incorrect. Public records now show the full purchase price of the home was $20M.
