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.

"I worked with Donna Brun for the past year to sell my home in Cold Point Manor. The real estate market has not be optimal for sellers. I have to share it was a pleasure to work with Donna. Her commitment and honesty were important to me. She cares about the work she does each day which I find so valuable and refreshing in business today. I would highly recommend Donna Brun to help you with your real estate needs." - Scott Passman
