Hot Property: Closing the books on 2017

Talk about ending the year on a high note: A redesigned estate in Bel-Air, once owned by filmmaker Michael Bay, just sold for $41 million.

But the biggest deal that we reported on in 2017 was an $88-million purchase by music power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The pair picked up an 82,050-square-foot mansion in August complete with a 15-car garage, four swimming pools and a helipad.
