Should You Add a Pool to Your Home?

Should You Add a Pool to Your Home?

Are you gazing out into your backyard and envisioning the ultimate poolside
paradise? Well, before you grab your swimsuit and take the plunge, let's explore
five key considerations to ensure your pool journey goes swimmingly and protects
your investment. Let's dive in!

Number 1: Create Your Pool Wishlist
It's important to consider things like style, size, and what you'll be using it for. Take
some time to really picture your ideal pool! Clarifying what you want will guide the
design process, creating a pool that reflects your vision.

Number 2: Establish Your Budget
Pools can range from affordable to extravagant. Set a realistic budget based on your
financial situation and pool vision. Careful budgeting will help ensure your pool
project stays afloat without financial concerns. And remember to include the cost of
maintaining a pool once built.

Number 3: Consider Safety Needs
Safety is crucial in pool ownership. Assess if you need equipment installed like
fencing, gates, alarms, pool covers, etc. These additional installs will make a
difference in your overall budget but will ease your mind so you can enjoy endless
fun and relaxation.

Number 4: Find the Right Pool Contractor
Choosing the right pool company is essential for a successful project. Research
reputable companies, check customer reviews, and evaluate portfolios. If needed,
I'm happy to refer you to pool professionals in the area who can assist you in
achieving your goals.

Number 5: Consult with Your Realtor Partner
Before deciding to put a pool in, consult with me, your local real estate partner. Once
you let me know your vision and the overall cost to make it come to life, I'll assess if
the investment aligns with the neighborhood values and ensure you'll see a return
on your investment. This information lets you make the best possible decision before
moving forward with any additions.
