Summer Is For Swimming And More

When it comes to pools there are three kinds of buyers.

The buyer who will not look at a home without a pool.

The buyer who will not look at a home with a pool.

The buyer who has not even thought about a pool.

Question

 Does a pool bring value to a home?

My answer

It does if you find the right buyer.

 

Jim and Dan Pool

 

Would you want a home with an indoor or outdoor pool?

What are the advantages of each?

 

Indoor pool

Year round swimming, entertaining and exercising.

24/7 use of the pool.

Perfect for those with sun sensitivity and skin cancer.

Easier to keep clean of debris, bugs, dirt and leaves.

Temperature control is easily maintained.

 

Outdoor Pool

Less expensive.

More styles and shapes to choose.

Fresh air and being outside.

Perfect for summer stay-cations.

Exercise and sun tanning.

Easy to throw a quick party.
