What Should We Look For When Buying A Home With A Pool?

My family is looking to buy a home soon with a pool in the backyard. What are some items we should look for during the process?

We’re excited to hear your family is interested in purchasing a new home (and pool). Many homeowners believe pools add value to their property and provide an outdoor space for families to make memories. 

While you’re on the hunt, here are a few things to ask:

- What was the estimate monthly maintenance charge for the pool?

- How old is the pool?

- When was the last time the pool has been cleaned/maintained?

- Is a pool fence required for safety?

Additionally, once you’ve discovered a home you’d like to put an offer on, you’ll want to find an inspector familiar with pool maintenance.
