Guess How Many Homes Over $500,000 Sold in Southeast Texas in the Past Twelve Months

Sales over 500k

The Southeast Texas Residential Real Estate Market is entering the busiest time of the year for home sales.  More homes sell between May-July than any other three month period.  

The median priced home in Southeast Texas is approximately $140,000.  Of the 3011 Single Family Homes that sold in Southeast Texas during the past 12 months (May 4, 2017- May 4, 2016), 35 of them were priced at or over $500,000.  

The luxury housing market in Beaumont makes up a small portion of the market.  Overall only about 10% of all home sales in Southeast Texas fall into the Luxury price points.  Sometimes its fun to see what homes have sold in the upper prices.  

This chart shows:

  1.   There were 35 homes that sold, closed priced at or over $500,000 in the past 12 months.
  2.   These luxury homes averaged 130 days on the market. 
  3.   Sellers received 94% of their asking price on average.
  4.   Over half the luxury home sales in Southeast Texas occurred in Beaumont.
  5.   26 of the 35 used conventional financing, while 6 paid cash.
