So what does this mean for 2015? Personally I think we will continue to see this trend continue of more luxury properties selling this year. This year has started off faster than any other in the past 8 years with a 300% increase in real estate inquiries.I think one thing that will help push to make our luxury market even stronger is the great values on property here compared to other parts of the country. There are currently 5 luxury properties listed in Dallas now starting last year's top up to $59.3 million! Take a look here: http://goo.gl/l4h3e7
