Elon Musk has finally tagged a buyer for the last home he owns almost a month after it went on sale in San Francisco, The Post can report.
The property was contracted out on Saturday, November 13 – a year and a half after the billionaire pledged to offload his vast real estate portfolio to focus on his mission to colonize Mars.
However, the contract is pending a conditional offer – meaning Musk, 50, has accepted an initial offer, but certain conditions must be met, and in some cases he has the right to opt out of the sale. if he wishes.
The boss of Tesla and SpaceX initially listed the home “by owner” in July, so any potential buyer would have to go directly through him to make an offer. However, it appears no one was able to reach him, according to an insider, so the house remained on the market for months.
Musk originally purchased the 10-bedroom, 16,000-square-foot mansion with “breathtaking views of the bay” for $ 23.3 million in 2017. The home is currently listed for $ 31.99 million after being launched for the first time on the market in spring 2020 for $ 35 million.
In 2020, he boldly announced that such material possessions distracted too many more lofty goals, such as going to Mars and “working on sustainable energy for Earth.”
The century-old residence, located in the upscale Hillsborough neighborhood of San Fran, was briefly taken off the market in September, before returning to the market on October 11 with official listing agents.
Mary and Brent Gullixson of Compass hold the list. The Post has reached out to Musk’s reps for comment.
“Decided to sell my last remaining house”, Musk wrote in a tweet at the time.
Comprised of seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, Musk called the Hillsborough home a “special place” for a “big family.”
The house was the last of the known properties owned by the South African-born business mogul, who revealed early in the pandemic that he was selling his assets to focus on much more important things.
Musk selling his last home also follows his announcement that he would move his Tesla headquarters from California to Texas.
In total, the entrepreneur has sold around $ 100 million in real estate assets.
Musk is currently ranked as the richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $ 271.5 billion.
