Vice President Kamala Harris Sells Her San Francisco Condo for a Big Profit

The nation's new vice president is unloading her San Francisco apartment -- and the fact that it had a buyer in just days suggests she got something on the order of a full-price offer, if not better.

Vice President Kamala Harris has reached a deal to sell the 1,069-square-foot loft, which had been listed for $799,000, about 63% more than what she paid for it in 2004, according to the Wall Street Journal. The one-bedroom, 1 1/2 -bath property is located in a boutique condominium in San Francisco's hot South of Market neighborhood. It was on the market for just over a week before it went under contract.

Harris bought the duplex unit nearly 17 years ago for $489,000. That was when Harris became the state of California's first Black district attorney.

The home is located on the top floor of the building. It boasts a high ceiling accentuating the full-height windows, an alcove that could be used as a home office, and a walk-in closet. Other details from the listing include a chef's kitchen with a gas stove, fireplace, and full-size washer and dryer. It also has what appears to be a private patio.

Other perks include garage parking with additional storage space.

The building is a block and a half from a Whole Foods location.

Harris today resides across the street from the White House in Blair House, the president's official guesthouse. That brick-and-stucco home has 14 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms, three formal dining rooms, a gym and even a beauty salon.

She is expected to move into the vice president's typical residence, on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory, when repairs are completed.

The vice president also owns a two-bedroom apartment in Washington, D.C., and a 3,500-square-foot house with a pool in the upscale Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

She reportedly paid $1,775,000 for the 1,700-square-foot condo unit in D.C.'s West End neighborhood in 2017, according to the Journal. The complex offers a 24-hour concierge at the front desk, a dog-washing station, and a heated rooftop pool with a sundeck.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom house in Los Angeles was purchased by her husband, entertainment lawyer Doug Emhoff, for $2.7 million in 2012. The couple were married in 2014.
