There were 20 contracts signed in Brooklyn’s luxury market last week for the second week in a row, an indication that the market may have reached a turning point after slowing throughout the year.

The properties were worth about $63.6 million overall and were split between 10 townhouses, seven condos and three co-ops. They went for an average price of about $3.2 million, according to the latest report from Stribling & Associates. The firm defines the borough’s luxury market as all homes priced at $2 million or higher.

Total sales were the same as the week before, but dollar volume was down from last week’s $79.6 million.
