The top five residential sales in Los Angeles County last week totaled just over $30 million combined, with the priciest home topping out at $7 million.

That’s less than half the total amount from the week before, when the five added up to $62 million in sales.

As has been the case in recent months, four of the homes sold after price cuts, including those in Pacific Palisades, Bel Air and Trousdale Estates in Beverly Hills.

The homes were not without luxury, however; one includes a four-hole putting green.
