The number of townhouses may have pulled ahead this week, but an $8 million Dumbo condo reigned supreme.

Thirty-nine contracts for homes asking $2 million or more were signed in Brooklyn from May 31 to June 6, according to Compass’ weekly report. It’s a slight uptick from the previous week’s 36 contracts.

Twenty-one of those deals were townhouses, 15 were condos and three were co-ops.

Though fewer condo contracts were signed, they had higher price tags: The median asking price for a condo was nearly $2.9 million, while the median asking price for a townhouse was $2.8 million.
