TThe figures are for the Houston residential real estate market for 2021, showing it has been a record year with overall single-family home sales surpassing the 2020 record by more than 10%. Total dollar volume hit a record $ 40 billion, up 28% from the previous year. Sales of luxury homes, those priced at $ 1 million and over, topped the 2020 record by more than 8%.
The week before releasing those numbers, the Houston Association of Realtors offered a recap of the 10 most expensive home sales in 2021.
So what does it take to be the most expensive sale in the Houston market over the past year? Try a two-acre estate at Memorial, 832 Kuhlman Road, with an 11,874-square-foot main house, an 817-square-foot two-bedroom guest cottage, and a grand 4,597-square-foot entertainment lodge with a veranda and a large ballroom, which alternately serves as an automobile showroom.
The list price was $ 10,950,000. This sale made Laura Sweeney of Compass RE Texas, the listing agent, and Moni Bohnisch, sales agent of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, two very happy women.
The Houston Association of Realtors released their list of the most expensive home sales in 2021 and unless you had at least $ 7 million in your affordability range, you weren’t in the market for the cheapest homes. most expensive in the region.
