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.

GLEAMING WHITE BEACHES and clear, turquoise waters in the shadows of towering cliffs dotted with centuries-old forts may come to mind when you think of the diver’s paradise of Aruba. An historic, Dutch-style downtown with tall skinny candy-colored buildings, too. All that is, of course, a major draw.
