Many people who are looking for a new home are enticed by the promise of a personal backyard oasis or spa-like escape from our day-to-day routines and adding to the enjoyment of the hot months.

As a seller, the summer is an opportune time to take advantage of a market that allows you to capture the subjective value of your pool. As a buyer, the summer is the perfect time to properly shop and inspect a pool when purchasing your new home. For both sellers and buyers, it is important to know what to expect when the transaction includes a pool.

Know the fence bylaws in your area and make sure the pump, filter and heater are in good working order. 

When selling a home with a pool, it is extremely important to be able to provide detailed information, and you may want to consider being proactive by arranging for a swimming pool pre-inspection. It is also always encouraged to keep a log of any openings, closings and pool maintenance.

When purchasing a home with a pool, you don’t want to forget to request all of the important pieces of pool equipment, such as the pool cover, skimmer, or cleaner. It is often suggested that purchasing a home with a pool is a much better investment than actually putting it in yourself. Pools are subjective value, so if this is something you are considering doing, talking to a professional, like one of our talented Rocca Sisters Team members, who understands the impact to your home’s value is strongly encouraged. Whether you are buying or selling, we can help!
