Benefits to buying a home with an existing swimming pool!

Who would have guessed that we would be faced with a national health crisis during 2020? Covid-19 is still here and many families are finding ways to modify their life and incorporate healthy living in a variety of new ways. While our country is staying home as much as possible to help fight the coronavirus, having a refreshing swimming pool in your backyard is definitely a welcomed retreat by many. A pool provides a safe place to play, exercise, and relax while many places of business or leisure are still closed or have limited hours. A swimming pool at home provides the perfect sanctuary for your family and a super fun staycation for you to enjoy. Whether we are dealing with the coronavirus or not, a backyard oasis is a beautiful gift for your family!

Benefits to buying a home with an exisiting swimming pool…

  • First of all, a swimming pool can positively affect the value of your new home.  A swimming pool is a very desirable year-round investment and can increase your home value and provide you with stability should you need or want to sell in the future. 
  • An existing swimming pool in a newly purchased home instantly provides a fun place to play! When you’re tired of un-packing boxes and hanging up wall pictures, simply throw on your swim suit and take a well-deserved break.  Enjoy the sun on your face as you cool off in the pool.  When it’s time to show your family and friends your new home, tell them to bring their swimsuit, towel, and favorite floaties and you have an instant pool party!
  • A backyard swimming pool provides a calming retreat in this often crazy and busy life.  Run a tranquil waterfall and feel a sense of peace within you as you enjoy beautiful moments of zen in your backyard oasis.
  • Another benefit to purchasing a home with a backyard swimming pool is you no longer need a gym membership! Enjoy the perks of fitness and a healthy living lifestyle in the comfort of your own home.  Lap swimming and water aerobics are both wonderful low-impact forms of exercise that can be enjoyed anytime of day. Or roll out your yoga mat on your pool deck and enjoy being one with nature as you stretch and energize your soul.
  • Lastly, when purchasing a home with a swimming pool, you know you are investing in your family’s overall health and happiness. Not only does a pool provide a fabulous place to exercise, but it provides an outdoor living lifestyle that most people crave.  The opportunity to get outside and smell the flowers and feel the soft breeze is priceless. Listening to the kids laughing in the pool and playing with their brothers and sisters will tug at your heart strings, as these are unforgettable memories for sure!
