The five biggest multifamily investment sales in Los Angeles County in June combined for $118 million, a stark decrease from last month’s $598 million total.

The $66 million sale of Andalucia, a 118-unit apartment building in Pasadena, to an individual named Taoguang Wang led the pack. That was one of the few big-ticket items that traded last month. It was followed by a $19 million sale of a property in Northridge.

The June figures were compiled from property records by Property Shark.
