Just why is a swimming pool a good investment? Here is part 2 of that article.
Earlier we discussed the personal reasons for installing an in ground swimming pool; now let’s discuss the business possibilities. The American Dream has always been to own a home and one day install a swimming pool. This may not be everyone’s dream, but it is for a large population of people.
With the real estate market being so tough today in the current economy, it is very important that you do something to your home to add more value. Installing that swimming pool is one of your options. The pool may not appeal to some of your potential buyers if you are looking to sell, but to that couple that have children on a swimming team or just love the water, it will be a great addition.
If you do have that pool and it is time to sell your home, it is very important that the pool area be well maintained. By keeping the pool area clean, the potential customer will have a better feel for how you have maintained your house. There has always been something magical about being around water. Try to offer your house for sale during the summer when the customer can actually see the pool in operation.
Your number one reason for purchasing a swimming pool should not be based on future resale value. Enjoy that pool, take care and maintain that pool and your investment will be returned to you many times over.
