The Lowdown: If you wanted to track the fortunes of the real estate market since 2006 in one house you could do worse than use this one as a case study. It changed hands in 2006 for over $5 million, in 2009 for $3.35 million and last week for nearly $4.3 million--a sweet profit for the most recent sellers. The new buyers have themselves a sprawling Mediterranean with four bedroom suites, office, gym, a "dining patio" with room for 20, pool, guest house, and plenty of land for roaming.


Listed for: $3.599 million
Listed on: August 9, 2013
Sold for: $4 million
Size: 4300 square foot house with four bedrooms and four bathrooms
Location: 1340 Laurel Way, Beverly Hills Post Office
The Lowdown: This midcentury house was home to Nobu Matsuhisa (of the eponymous sushi empire) for nearly two decades. It comes with more than an acre of land, pool, nifty circular living room, his-and-hers bathtubs, and--of course--a sushi bar. It also comes with a bad case of the 90s, and will likely see some updating before all is said and done.

Listed for: $3.68 million
Listed on: June 25, 2013
Sold for: $3.68 million
Size: 4300 square foot house with five bedrooms and five and a quarter bathsrooms
Location: 800 Chester Avenue, San Marino
The Lowdown: Built in 1941 and updated in 2006, there's not much here to inflame the passions either way. The rooms look spacious, the kitchen looks functional, it sits on .45 acres, and has a pool. What is interesting, though, is that the sellers only had the house for six months before listing it (and reusing most of the listing photos). They picked it up in December 2012 for $3.128 million.
