It’s been a sluggish year for home sales in Texas, but luxury markets are staying afloat, leading to a slew of super high-end listings.

As of December, six listings carry an asking price above $10 million in the Lone Star State, according to the Houston Association of Realtors. 

Texas’ luxury real estate market has chilled. Deal volume and median prices for homes priced over $1 million plummeted across the Texas Triangle metros in the third quarter, according to Agent Story. Only Dallas-Fort Worth saw luxury prices increase slightly, although deal volume was down.

Pricey homes are staying on the market longer, too. The average was 64 days in Austin.
