Thinking of buying a house with a swimming pool or installing one in your current home?

  You should consider all aspects of pool ownership before taking the plunge. Owning a home with a pool comes with plenty of advantages it can also come with quite a few serious considerations. From the price of pool maintenance and the cost of higher insurance premiums to the safety of your children and the impact on your property value, there is plenty to think about when buying a home with a pool. Here are a few things you should know when making this decision.
  1. Pools require regular maintenance and cleaning:   

    From using proper chemicals to cleaning the surfaces, the upkeep of a swimming pool takes time and effort on your part. Don’t have the time or energy to take care of a pool? Fortunately, there are plenty of pool service companies available to help maintain your pool. Be prepared to see your pool professionals on a weekly basis. (We know some great pool professionals if you need one)

  2. Having a pool can improve your quality of life:

    Buying a house with a pool comes with its fair share of perks. For one, you'd have access to your own private swimming pool. Second, swimming helps improve cardiovascular health, flexibility and overall physical well-being. It’s also been proven to boost mental health and quality of life. Finally, having a pool can improve your social life. After all, who doesn’t want to throw a private pool party with friends? (We love swimming so feel free to invite us over anytime!)

  3. You’ll need outdoor space for the pool and its equipment:

    If the property is small, you may want to think twice before buying a house with a pool or installing one in the backyard. Not only will the pool take up a good chunk of outdoor space, but it will also require extra room to store necessary pool equipment and accessories such as pool vacuums, skimmers, cleaning supplies, floats and towels. So make sure you have plenty of outdoor space to accommodate your pool needs before moving into a home with a pool.
  4. Having a pool may increase your property value:
