    Here is a link to the article in its entirety,  but in case you’re in a hurry, here are some extremely interesting highlights:

    1. Statewide, 39,145 homes changed hands for $1 million or more in 2013, up 45% from the year before and the best showing since 2007.

    2. Southern California broke a record with 4,514 sales at $2 million and above, and L.A. County also eclipsed previous highs with 2,628 sales.

    3. Statewide, areas with the highest number of sales at $1 million-plus were led by Manhattan Beach, Hillsborough and La Jolla. Brentwood and Beverly Hills came in sixth and seventh, respectively.

Celebrities including American Hustle star and house flipper Jeremy Renner were in on the action too.  Renner, along with his real estate business partners, “raked in $24 million for a mansion on two acres in Holmby Hills. The Roaring ’20s Art Deco-style house, reached by a cobblestone driveway, includes five fireplaces, six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 10,005 square feet of living space.”

    Here are some pics of Renner’s gorgeous flip!

    With its 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, 3,000 square-foot wine cellar and tasting room, tennis court,  spa/pool complex, and ballroom to fit 500, the home has been on the market since 2007 for $125 million and it just sold in an all cash transaction for $102 Million.
