Some of the most expensive homes in Texas? They're nearby in Boerne, according to Coldwell Banker's recent analysis.
The 2016 Coldwell Banker Home Listing Report ranked more than 2,000 markets across the U.S. based on the average listing price of four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes. The report, said to be the most extensive home price comparison tool in the U.S., includes a nationwide list of expensive and affordable markets, as well as lists for each state.
Boerne is the second most expensive market in Texas. A four-bed, two-bath home there costs $362,230 on average. In Austin, the most expensive Texas market, four-bedroom homes go for $414,563.
Austin is the only major Texas metro to appear among the 10 most expensive markets. Nearby Georgetown and Round Rock rank Nos. 3 and 9. Houston-area suburbs Sugar Land and The Woodlands rank Nos. 7 and 8; and Keller and Frisco, near Dallas-Fort Worth, are Nos. 6 and 10. San Antonio proper ranks 60th in the state, with an average price of $227,024.
The 10 most expensive markets on the nationwide list are all located in California. In Saratoga, the most expensive of all, a four-bedroom home goes for $2,453,718, which makes Boerne sound like a steal.
