While you are dreaming, you might as well dream big. To put it lightly the Austin housing market has been booming in the middle of a pandemic.

This property is a prime example of just how fast things have been moving. The house had a tax assessment of $683,830 in 2017 and is now on the market for almost $3 million dollars.

Granted three million dollars in Texas gets you a lot more house than in most places. This home boasts 4 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 partial bathrooms, and 7,055 square feet on 5 acres.

Huge Home In Hays County Is A Dreamy Austin Retreat 

The Windmill Ceiling Fan in the living room alone is $2000 and made by a local Texas business in Dallas. That ceiling fan runs on electricity collected in the solar panels over the carport along with everything else in the home.

There is also a rainwater catchment system that is supplemented by a well on the property. Free electricity and water might help you pay the over $18,000 a month mortgage right?

I'm not trying to hit you with too many pricing realities that are going to burst your bubble. I just like to imagine who can pay that much a month for a home, and how they got there.
