The top 10 luxury housing markets in Greater Houston

by James McClister


West University Place was the top luxury market in Greater Houston during 2016’s third quarter, according to exclusive data Redfin provided to Houston Agent.

From July to September, luxury sales in West University Place, defined by a closing price of $1 million or more, far exceeded the area’s other luxury ZIP codes, tallying 51 total sales and an average sale price of $1.5 million. Greater Houston’s second most active market, Bellaire, saw 32 sales and an average sale price of $1.25 million. In both markets, prices dropped year over year, falling 4.2 and 8.6 percent, respectively.

Redfin recorded price increases from Q3 2015 in only three of the area’s top 10 luxury markets.

    Dan & Cynthia,

    Check out the article posted whereby its takes the 77024 zip code in two rankings, with homes over $1,000,000. They split Memorial & Hunters Creek in its separate category, with Hunters Creek with the 9.3% increase for 3rd quarter. I will check again on HAR for all the Villages so it may be more accurate.
