Guide To Houston Luxury Condos For Sale

From established landmarks to newcomers to the city’s skyline, luxury condos in Houston boast of sweeping views, spacious living spaces, and locations within the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

Upscale Houston condos are a mix of old and new—from established residential buildings like the Houstonian, Bayou Bend Towers, and Four Leaf Towers to newer and upcoming buildings like the Belfiore, 2727 Kirby, and the Royalton.

Houston’s most expensive condos are mostly within the Galleria, River Oaks, Briar Hollow, and the Museum District area. These are among the city’s most accessible neighborhoods and among the most vibrant as well.

Typically, there are less than 30 Houston luxury condos for sale listed at over $1M at any given time.

However, an influx of upscale high-rises built in the past decade (some still under development) have added a few more options.

There are certain upsides to buying a Houston luxury condo for sale, including a wider range of amenities (some with full service), great locations, and high accessibility. (See also Luxury Condos That Have Been The Best Investments)

“Paige Martin and her team are THE condo experts in Houston. Paige has literally written the book (The Definitive Houston Condo Buying Guide) about buying a condo in Houston. They know what buildings to avoid, what floor plans to be wary about, and they have relationships to help with off market inventory and sales. If you’re considering buying or selling a condo (new construction or one of the current buildings) I would highly recommend you talk to them. You won’t find any other Realtor or team who is as knowledgeable as they are about the pro’s and con’s of Houston’s highrise buildings. They are fabulous to work with, are very candid with their advice and will look out for your best interests. I highly recommend the HoustonProperties.com team.”
