Luxury sales are starting to pick up again after a sluggish January.

Closed sales so far this year hit their lowest point last week, when sales of the top five priciest homes toted a measly $6.4 million.

This week’s most expensive homes captured an additional $10 million compared to last week, bringing the total to $16.4 million. Luxury sales haven’t grossed that much since mid-October.

All of the properties on this week’s list are single family homes on the North and West Sides.

Price and property details were found on Redfin, from Jan. 31 to Feb. 7.
