Brooklyn’s luxury market is sticking to the status quo.

The borough saw 23 contracts inked last week for homes asking $2 million or more, down slightly from 26 signed in the previous period, according to Compass’ weekly report. 

The total has hovered around the low to mid twenties for the past three weeks with townhouses leading the charge over condos and co-ops, including the two topping this week’s report. Of the contracts signed last week, 16 were for townhouses, six were for condos and one was for a co-op. 

The most expensive home to find a buyer was 608 3rd Street in Park Slope, with an asking price of $4.9 million. The 21.5-foot-wide townhouse spans 4,300 square feet and has six bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

It also has wood-burning fireplaces, a rear garden and a formal dining room.

The home, located less than a block from Prospect Park, is the latest Park Slope property to rank among the priciest contracts signed in Brooklyn. Another townhouse just steps away from its front stoop — a historic home at 628 3rd Street entered contract in mid-June with an asking price of $4.7 million. 

The second most expensive home to enter contract was 367 Greene Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a Brooklyn neighborhood where homes rarely crack the priciest contracts inked in the borough. The four-story townhouse, last asking $4.4 million, spans 3,600 square feet and has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

The renovated home also features a rear garden with a patio, professional-grade kitchen, full-floor primary bedroom and high ceilings. 

Brown Harris Stevens’ David Feldman had the listing.

The average asking price for the 23 contracts was $2.8 million and the average price per square foot was $1,044. The homes spent an average of 188 days on the market and had an average discount of 1 percent from the original listing price.
