Maybe it was the leadup to the Labor Day weekend, when home sales usually slow down, especially the luxury variety.
Whatever it was the five most-expensive residential listings amounted to $42.3 million. That’s less than half of the $100 million total that hit the market the week prior.
The priciest home that listed last week was a grandiose Italian Villa-style home on Benedict Canyon Drive in Beverly Hills, seeking $15 million. Despite the No.1 spot, the sellers of the pad were in fact vying for $19.5 million for the 12,500-square-foot mansion when they first listed it last summer.
The data and information was pulled from the Multiple Listings Service and Redfin during Aug. 26 – 31.
