L.A. may shadow New York City in luxury home sales, but the priciest sales of the first quarter of 2016 were hardly steals. In fact, the biggest on-the-market sale neared $30 million.
In TRData‘s analysis of Redfin and PropertyShark data, Hollywood Hills took the gold. The West L.A. neighborhood accounts for four of the 10 most expensive homes sold in the first three months of 2016.
