WASHINGTON — July set no records for the high-end of the D.C. region’s housing market, but the most expensive residential property that sold last month was still a lofty $5.3 million, according to data provided by listing service MRIS Inc.

The seven-bedroom, custom contemporary at 1930 Foxview Circle in the District’s Foxhall Village neighborhood was originally listed at $5.7 million.

Closing sales priced of the 15 most expensive residential transactions in the Washington region in July ranged from $2.5 million to $5.3 million. Three of the top 15 listings sold for list price, and one sold for slightly over list. The other 11 properties all sold for less than the listing price.

Real estate firm Redfin recently called Washington one of the worst-performing markets for luxury real estate right now — at least based on pricing, with the average sale price in the top 5 percent of the market just shy of $2.3 million, down 4.1 percent from a year ago.

MRIS provided the ranking information and images for this list. MRIS Homes is a Mid-Atlantic region real estate home search site offering real-time local listings from the Multiple Listing Service.
