When I moved down to Florida, in 2003, and thought about purchasing a home, a pool immediately came to mind! As we all know, it gets hot in Florida…especially during the Summer months. It’s nice to be able to come home and take a refreshing dip in your private pool.
Whether laying on a raft and floating around for relaxation, swimming laps for exercise, or watching Fido and the kids frolic in the water, many Florida home buyers look to purchase pool homes. Well-maintained pool homes tend to get top dollar in this market. Keep that in mind when starting your home search.
There are a few types of swimming pools with inground, gunite pools definitely being the most popular. They are one of the top choices for homeowners today due to their beauty, versatility and durability. Gunite pools come in a variety of finishes and color choices and added features such as spas, waterfalls, and custom steps.
When buying a home with a pool, it’s important to do a thorough inspection. The age of the pool, cracks, and leaks can lead to additional expenses that a home buyer does not want to incur. Also, make sure to have in your budget for pool maintenance.
