High-end home sales have dropped in Texas over the past year, but Dallas-Fort Worth still leads the pack in luxury sales among metros in the Lone Star State, and prices are going up. 

Between Nov. 2022 and Oct. 2023, 4,390 million-dollar homes were sold in DFW, according to a report from Texas Realtors. That’s a drop of 12 percent since 2022. 

The average price of luxury homes rose 10 percent in that same time period. For homes priced at more than $1 million, the average price was $405 per square foot in DFW in October 2023, compared to $368 per square foot at the end of 2022.
