It’s the heat of the summer, and you want a home with a swimming pool but before you go off the deep end, make sure the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
Swimming pools are a strong part of the outdoor living trend. They’re fun for all ages, they promote fitness, and they give you a great place to entertain family and friends. They also add costs, increased liability and ongoing maintenance. So, to help you decide if it’s worth it, ask yourself the following questions:
– Do you and your family members swim now? Would you swim more in a pool of your own?
– Are pools popular in your area? Do you have a long, hot swimming season?
– Does the pool complement the home? Or did the pool replace an amenity you might need such as a play-yard?
