If you’re looking for homes with pools, give me a call and let me help you ask the right questions to help you make the right decision. Whether you’ve owned a pool before or if you’re dipping your toe in the pool water for the first time, there are certain things you should consider before buying a home with a pool.

One of the first things to determine is why you want to get a home with a pool. There are numerous reasons why people are drawn to pools. It might be because of children who want to have some summer fun with friends, personal exercise, or as the perfect backdrop to an evening under the stars. Whatever the reason, it’s always good to know why you want to look at homes with pools.

Another thing to consider when looking for homes with pools is the cost of maintence. Depending upon why you want to get a pool, maintenance might be a big factor that changes your mind. There is the cost of water, electricity and the chemicals needed to maintain the water’s balance. Over time, a pool can be a costly enhancement to your home.

Many homebuyers also consider the value that a pool adds to the home. Is the long-term cost going to provide an increase in the home’s value? This can be hard to determine but it’s something I can help you factor into your decision. One of the biggest things we can look at it is prices for other homes in the area, with and without pools.
