There have been 655 closed sales over $5 Million in 2023 versus 970 closed sales in 2022, down -32%. Of these, 199 were $10 Million+ in 2023, versus 335 $10 plus million in 2022, down 41%. 56 of these sales were $20 plus million in 2023, versus 92 $20 plus million dollar sales in 2022, Down 39%. 21 of these sales were $30 plus million in 2023 vs 43 closed sales of $30 plus million in 2022, Down 51%. 10 of these sales were $40 plus million in 2023 vs 26 closed sales of $40 plus million in 2022, Down 61%. Volume might be down, but prices are still higher than pre-pandemic 2019 levels due to lack of supply or inventory. Roughly 2/3 of homeowners either own their homes outright or enjoy mortgage interest rates under 4%.  Plus, many Boomers still own second and third homes which restricts supply for other buyers.

The largest sale this year was $190 Million and created by architect Tadao Ando just steps to the ocean in Malibu. Jay-Lo and Ben Affleck are enjoying this concrete home at 27712/16 Pacific Coast Highway.  Tadao also designed a home for Kanye West.
