Single-family homes and recently-built residential properties dominated this week’s list of priciest home sales in Chicago.

Four of the five properties that left the market were single-family homes, and three of the properties that made the list were built in the last four years.

The overall tally of $8.4 million for the bunch was half of last week’s $16.7 million total. That higher sum was boosted by the sale of Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward’s No. 9 Walton unit. But this week’s number was still above the early July figure.

For this week, two of the homes that sold were in Lakeview  — one condo, one single-family — two were in Lincoln Park and the other was in North Center.

Price and property details were found on Redfin, from July 20 to 24.
