Texas is home to some of the hottest real estate markets in the country, which has led to more than a few complaints about high rents. But paying more than $20,000 per month? That's unheard of — unless you reside at one of these high-priced homes.
RENTCafé recently compiled a list of the most expensive homes for rent in the Lone Star State. They can be found in Houston, Austin and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Houston has two of the three most expensive homes on the list. Both homes are situated on the same street in the ritzy River Oaks neighborhood. For $18,550 a month, you can rent a New Orleans-style two-story traditional brick abode. A jump to $20,000 a month gets you a Mediterranean-style manor. Also featured is a sprawling estate in Katy for just $17,000.
The four Austin properties represent the diverse local landscape: two rustic Hill Country abodes, one modern estate, and one downtown condo. The monthly rent for these pricey places ranges from $15,000 to $18,000, which only sounds high until you travel to Houston.
North Texas boasts both unique — and pricey — digs. Frisco offers a castle-like manor with cozy stone nooks for $15,000 per month. For the same price in Cedar Hill you can rent a one-of-a-kind homestead with gorgeous views on five acres.
Dallas takes home the prize for the most expensive rental property on the list. A gorgeous 9,000-square-foot manor north of University Parks comes with five bedrooms, a four car garage, three living areas, a two-story office, and a resort-style swimming pool. This prime piece of real estate will set you back $26,000 per month.
