Is there is a renewed sense of optimism in the Los Angeles luxury market?
The top five homes that hit the market in L.A. County last week were nearly four times more than the total the week before.
This past week’s total of $160.9 million included a Beverly Hills estate once owned by the son of late-billionaire Norton Simon. Listed at $42 million, it took the top spot.
Two homes with killer views in Brentwood and Beverly Hills, meanwhile, each are listed for $36 million apiece. The others include a Tuscan-style estate in Beverly Hills, and another, though slightly less pricey Brentwood manse.
The data and information was compiled from the Multiple Listings Service and Redfin during Sept. 2 to 9.
