SAN DIEGO (CBS SF) – The number of California homes selling for more than a million dollars rose to the highest level in more than five years, according to industry publication DataQuick.

The all-time high was 54,773 homes sold for more than $1 in 2005.

A recovering economy and a record number of homes selling for cash also pushed the number of $5 million homes to an all–time high, according to the report.
