We're always looking to upgrade am I right? We want the promotion at work, the raise in pay and of course, the house. However, living above your means is an understatement when it comes to these monstrous homes. Take a look for yourself at the luxury as well as the price tag of these behemoths.

1). Waterloo- Coming in at $1.5 million, this 6,000 square foot home comes complete with 4 bedrooms and 5 baths, with a modern ranch style interior decor. Stunning!

2). Cedar Falls- At $1.2 Million, this 6,300 square foot home resembles that of Aztecan design. Tan stone, and brick work coat the outside and it comes replete with 5 Bed/5 bath. Also with a 3 car garage.

3). Waverly- Priced at 995k, this is more about the land. 16 acres to be exact and the house is no slouch either. At nearly 4,400 square feet this ranch style home also comes with a separate 4 stall garage, 5 bedroom and 6 bath.

4). Cedar Falls- Another Cedar Falls location, this time at $1.05 million. At 6,500 square feet this is the most modern of the homes having been built in 2012. 7 bedrooms and 6 baths this is a luxury house with a sleek modern design that is built for the austentatious.

5). Independence- Not technically in the cedar valley but a spectacular home. At $1.5 million, this home is placed on River Ridge Golf Course. Nearly 6,100 square feet and a 3 bedroom, 4 bath, this is more about the ground that it sits on. With a scenic view of the course on the back deck. Quite Beautiful.
