Where are the most expensive homes in TX by $ per square foot? I'm guessing either Westlake area of Austin, River Oaks in Houston or Highland Park in Dallas?

It is hard to judge $/sq ft. If I have 1000 acres but have a small house, the $/sq ft will be large. If I have a lakefront property with a cabin, I may also have a large $/sq ft.

That being the case, houston seems to top out at around 500-600/sq ft.

Westlake along lake austin runs around 1000/sq ft

south padre island with ocean views runs around 500-600/sq ft

dallas seems to top out at 500-600 too. But that is primarily because the richest areas have 10K sq ft houses. In some of those areas you can find a house or two that top 1500/sq ft

Yes, it hard to figure out which one because of the lists comprised. Take Forbes for example, they say certain zip codes have a "Median Price of X amount" of dollars. Yet, when you search for a house, you can't find anything on the market for less than double that "X Amount."

77019 and 77024 are the two Highest in Houston.
