Pros and Cons of Having a Pool Installed Versus Purchasing a Home with a Pool

When thinking about a pool for yourself or for your family, it is strictly a personal choice. Some house hunters won’t look at homes that do not come with a pool. Others buy their dream home and then later decide to have a pool installed. So which is best for you?
Here are a few points to keep in mind before you make your next move:
  • If you fall in love with a home that has a pool, but you never considered a pool, make sure you will use it and learn to care for it
  • Buying a pool with a home already installed will likely take some time for you to learn how the equipment works. If it’s been installed for many years, some updates may be needed
  • People who decide to have a pool installed have more time  to plan where the pool will go and what equipment they will need to care for it
  • Those who plan for a pool installation can customize their pool exactly how they want it
Whatever you decide, you can look to Mud Slingers for equipment recommendations and pool installations. Give us a call at (317) 650 – 5131.
