You have all types of options here for homes with pools. We have pools in homes as little as $140k all the way up. The area is really going to depend on what's important to you and your family. I personally live in the NW side of town and love it.. it's really booming over here and we are smack in the middle of Sea World and 6 Flags Fiesta Texas. If you are unsure, you should start looking to hire a Realtor here that you feel comfortable with and has a lot of great technology and know-how to get you virtual tours, live video tours and all types of other helpful services to assist you with your decision since you may not be able to be here physically.
Al... I like your home. I have a client that put your home on my list, so I will try to make it out there.
