It was no surprise that Hurricane Sandy hurt the luxury real estate market, two weeks ago when most of New York City was with out power.
But last week, the market made a strong rebound, with 20 contracts being signed on properties listed at $4 million and above, according to the Olshan Realty report.
Three properties sold for $20 million and above.
The biggest sale of the week was a townhouse on E. 70th Street, which was on the market for just three months. The house sold for $24.5 million. Real estate developer David Edelstein bought the house three years ago for $12.85 million.
The 20-foot-wide townhouse spanned 8,000 square feet and had an elevator.
