2023 Drexel

This year has been a doozy. But, in spite of everything going on, the Houston real estate market is on the path toward a record-breaking year, according to HAR.


Last month, the median price for a single-family home rose 11 percent, to $266,685, and the average price was up 12.4 percent, to $334,996. Both figures are new records for the month of October. The total value of properties sold last month was a whopping $3.5 billion — a nearly 50 percent increase compared to October 2019, even with the total number of active listings being down by 26 percent compared to the same timeframe.

Nearly 10,000 single-family homes were sold in Houston last month, compared to 7,187 a year earlier. Among those transactions? Dozens of multi-million-dollar properties, from River Oaks to Memorial to The Woodlands. Here are the five most expensive homes sold last month.

AN INTERVIEW WITH Dr. Katie Eick, CEO & Founder of Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets & Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

What were your biggest challenges in 2020? Well, the onset of Covid would have to be our biggest challenge. Before we knew too much about how it was transmitted, we enacted mask mandates and changed the way we interacted with each other and our clients. We shortened our hours and paired off into groups of two so that if one group got sick or exposed, we would have other groups intact to be able to continue working.
