Questions to Ask When Buying a Home With a Pool

Spending the summer floating in your very own pool with a nice, cold drink in hand might be your idea of heaven. And if that’s you, having a pool might be at the top of your house’s must-have list! But there are some important questions you need to ask whenever you tour a house with a pool:

1. What safety measures do you need? Make sure you know what safety measures come with the house and what you’ll need to install afterward.

2. What is the maintenance? Some pools are super low maintenance, while others are not. Keep in mind that the size and type of pool will have a big impact on how much time/money you spend taking care of it.

3. Will home inspectors check the pool? As a feature of the property, it’s wise to make sure the pool is in good condition before you buy. When you’re hiring an inspector, make sure to ask if they check the pool–if not, try to find a pool inspector who can check it out for you.

Pools can add a lot of value to a house and make relaxing during the summer a breeze. With these questions in your back pocket, you’ll be able to make sure you get the right house with the right pool for you! Chris 480-754-9077 & Cheryl 480-754-9477
