Inground Pools: Splash or Dash?

Filed under Home Tips, Homeowners on Jul 10,2018 | Tagged in: , ,

Should you buy a home with an inground pool – or walk away from the temptation?  Your splash-or-dash decision should be based on a sound understanding of the pros and cons of owning a pool. 

This article from The Balance offers a good overview of pool ownership realities.  In a nutshell, if you love water, swimming, entertaining family and friends and the aesthetics of sparkling turquoise in your backyard, it could be a great decision.  On the other hand, maintenance, chemical costs and safety concerns could be a reason to walk away.  Another point to consider is that while an inground pool could increase your resale value, it may take longer to find a buyer who wants a home with a pool.
