Though Brooklyn’s luxury market saw fewer contracts signed last week, sales volume was higher thanks to two big sales in Park Slope.

The two townhouses — both on 1st Street — topped last week’s list of homes asking $2 million or more in Brooklyn, according to Compass’ weekly report on the borough’s luxury market. The list saw contracts signed for 19 townhouses, nine condos and one co-op.

The total volume inched up to $97.5 million across 29 contracts from last week’s $92.7 million across 30 contracts.
