The real estate market is moving in Houston, with several new listings this week and a price drop on a home believed to be owned by J.J. Watt.

Diane Kingshill of Compass, the listing agent on the home likely owned by the former Texans defensive end, told the Houston Chronicle that the real estate market is expected to pick up as the weather warms.

“Spring is here and we’re going into a big season now,” she told the newspaper.

Price Reduced on House Likely Owned by Former Texans Defensive End J.J. Watt

A house that the Houston Chronicle reports was likely owned by former Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has been on the market for about three months. The price on the 5-bedroom, 6-1/2 bathroom home was originally $5.7 million, and it was recently dropped to $4.99 million, the listing says. The 7,706-square-foot home is located at 9 Gage Court and sits on a lot nearing one acre and has a four-car garage.

Some of its features include stone floors, quartzite kitchen counters and large master bathroom made almost entirely of Italian marble. Another stunning feature is the large, T-shaped swimming pool, which the Houston Chronicle reports is a hint toward its ownership. The listing agent would not confirm the owner to the newspaper for privacy reasons, the newspaper reported.

The listing says:

Exquisite in every detail, this 5BD/6.5BD impresses with bespoke designer interiors and a breathtaking outdoor oasis. Chic stone tile floors, soaring ceilings and walls of windows throughout. The dramatic entry leads to an elegant formal dining room with wine room and on to the luxurious living room overlooking the pool and massive entertaining pavilion with summer kitchen.
