In the market to buy a new home?

Chances are you’re not sorting your results on Zillow or Realtor from highest price to lowest price. But don’t worry, the Caller-Times has done it for you.

The national mortgage interest rate for buying a home has more than doubled from an average of 3.01% for a 30-year fixed loan in September 2021 to 6.7% in September, according to the government-sponsored company Freddie Mac.

In April, real estate agents said the COVID-19 pandemic had caused historically low interest rates and increases were more of a “normal” level. At the time, the rates were 5%. It is widely expected that mortgage interest rates will continue to rise even further this year.

Although the following houses may be a little out of your reach, it is nice to dream. Take a look at the top 10 most expensive homes for sale in the Corpus Christi area.
