While the 834 houses valued at $1 million or more only account for less than 1 percent of the total residences in the county, that number has jumped from just 26 homes in 1998, according to the Oklahoma County Assessor’s Office.
By 2001, there were 118 homes valued at more than $1 million, and six of those were valued at more than $2 million. Current numbers show $1 million homes dotted around the city, with heavy concentrations in northwest Oklahoma City’s Gaillardia and Nichols Hills.
Five homes in the county are valued at more than $4 million, 18 at more than $3 million, and more than 100 are valued at more than $2 million. —Gazette staff
