KEVIN - Let me know if you need any help if you decide to come in February.  As for the salt water pools, they are more environmentally friendly, and the water is softer than regular chlorine pools.  Here's an article I found on both the advantages and disadvantages of a salt water pool:

BRENDA - Yes, Austin offers a tremendous value.  No murders occurred in these homes.  In fact, we have a very low crime rate here.  Murders are BIG news when they happen in this area.

Just to chime in on the saltwater pools.  I recently converted my pool over to the saltwater system.  My wife says it is because I love the ocean and have been a lifelong surfer!  But reality is that it is MUCH easier to take care of, none of the harmful chemicals (don't have to worry about green hair!), you can open your eyes under water and see without any burn on the eyes (less salt then your eyes have in them!),_as Jason stated, the water is much smoother - like a mineral pool.  We LOVE it.  And no adding chlorine every week, hardener, alkalinity, etc... Just a bag of salt here and there and it does the rest. Some alkalinity every once in a long while to work the ph. Really nice system and to me, well worth the money.  And this is from a guy who grew up with a pool and cleaning it was one of my weekly chores since I was 9!!  I also worked at Pinch A Penny (pool store chain) when I was younger so I have a pretty decent grasp on the whole pool thing. So, anything I can do to work less on a pool I will take!!! I suggest it!

JENNIFER - I am going to set up a contest to see who can send me the most buyers soon.  By the way, you will appreciate this joke (old one from Steve Martin on SNL):

"Please, don't call me Mr. Crouch, call me Mr. JASON Crouch."

Holy Guacamole!  I hope to start my series pricing availability in the D.C. area soon -- you won't have many people trading in your Austin homes for the townhouses they could buy in our area at these prices!

JASON:  There's an area nearby that the $699K house would fit beautifully into.  Of course, you'd have to spend about $2 million to buy it and then be prepared to pay around $25k- $30k in taxes!
