Numeric sort for text field?

Maybe this easy and I'm just missing it.

Spitting out a list of entries. Have a "price" value set as a text fieldtype. Would like to sort those entries by the price field as an actual numeric value. However it is sorting as alpha so I get:

720,000 89,000 900,000

Pretty simple. I'd think. But I must be overlooking something.
