An analysis from released last week reported Travis County tops Texas as the county with the highest median home price. The report, based on February 2022 real estate figures, reported a median home value listing at $637,000 — up more than $200,000 compared to February 2018 figures.

The five-year real estate analysis weighed out the median listings for Texas’ 10 most populated counties: Harris, Dallas, Tarrant, Bexar, Travis, Collin, Denton, Hidalgo, El Paso and Fort Bend. Despite not leading as the most populated county, Travis County’s increasingly expensive real estate landscape is a continuous trend as conversations surface on affordability concerns.

While Travis County topped the list for median home listings, Collin County emerged in the lead for year-over-year median home listing increases. Median list prices increased in Collin County by more than 29% between February 2021 and February 2022; Travis County followed second, with an 18% year-over-year increase.

  • Collin County: 29.2% increase
  • Travis County: 18.0% increase
  • El Paso County: 15.7% increase
  • Hidalgo County: 15.3% increase
  • Denton County: 15.0% increase
  • Tarrant County: 14.1% increase
  • Fort Bend County: 12.6% increase
  • Bexar County: 8.5% increase
  • Harris County: 2.5% increase
  • Dallas County: 0.3% increase
