Experience the Difference the Right Agent Can Make.
It's the Spring selling season, but more importantly, it's almost POOL SEASON!
If you are thinking about buying a house with a swimming pool or having one installed in your current home, you'll want to make sure you consider the pros and cons before you take the proverbial plunge.
No one will argue that having a pool in your backyard can offer plenty of enjoyment for family and friends, but owning a pool also means regular maintenance and cleaning (by you or someone you hire), and also means that you need to be prepared for an increase in your utility bills. It may also mean a higher insurance premium, as you may need to increase your liability coverage due to the high incidence of injuries involved with swimming pools.
If you choose to have a pool installed, make sure you have the outdoor space for the equipment- the pump and other equipment and accessories such as pool vacuums, skimmers, cleaning supplies, floats and towels.
It's important to know that having a pool MAY OR MAY NOT increase your property value. This is not the reason you should buy a home with a pool or have one installed. There's a good chance that you will be more likely to resell your home if your property has a pool, but it may not get you any more money.
