    Like I said - lets get 41 people together to chip in $100k. Treat it like a timeshare - everyone gets 1 week in the house per year and we rent out the other 14 to pay the taxes/upkeep.

    I'm in. I want a week in March.

    umm yeah, it says the house is built on the highest point in Austin. Wrong! Mt. Bonnell is the highest point in Austin. The house next to Mt. Bonnell park is the highest point of a house built in Austin. His house is not even close.

    Too bad it's in Texas where the housing market is still somewhat decent, if it was in Ga we could snag it for almost half price :D

    Better yet if it was in Detroit could get it for just the back taxes.

    If you moved his house about 20 miles in any direction, the price would be a third of what it is. He's sitting on some prime real estate that was a whole lot cheaper when he bought it back in the '80s.

    From 1990 - 2000, Austin grew about 32% in population. From 2000 - 2010, it grew about 25%. The housing market is insane here.

    - Aye, something like that sounds pretty intriguing... maybe offer to 30 people and have a few more primary owners share a bit more. Do not offer what is being asked.. aye, intrigued. Upkeep, insurance.. interesting.

    Sounds like a good place for guild meet ups. I think we need some good internet connections and wireless there. Whenever you get PK'ed you have to take a slide down the slide. Ha ha.
