Forty homes asking more than $2 million went into contract last week, according to Compass’ weekly report. The total of those contracts’ asking prices was $124.8 million, up from the previous week’s $108 million.
That’s the second highest total for asking prices since the week of March 22, when $133 million worth of contracts were signed. The market cooled to $64 million the following week, but the total for signed contracts has been steadily rising since then.
