Austin, Texas is known for its unique vibe, the annual South by Southwest festival and residents’ campaign to keep it “weird.”

But the city is also among the largest in Texas and the state capital. And the Austin area is home to many major tech companies, including Dell’s headquarters and facilities for IBM and Apple.

Austin has seen a seemingly “eternal boom,” Texas Monthly reported in 2016. And that has continued since, according to the Austin Chamber.

Even the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t stopped demand for homes in Austin, though it has dramatically affected the amount of inventory hitting the market, according to the Austin Board of Realtors.

Residential sales in Austin dropped by 36.6 percent in May to 826 transactions due to the limited inventory, and new listings decreased by 18.7 percent, according to the Realtors group. But the median sale price increased by 10.7 percent year-over-year to $424,050.

Still, there were more than 1,600 active listings in Austin last month. Here’s a look at what you can get in Austin for $1 million:
