Buying a new house? Get a pool
Whether you believe a pool is a luxury or a necessity (like if you live in a desert area of the country) a swimming pool, for many families is a dream come true. In fact, the National Association of Realtors has found an in-ground swimming pool can increase property value by as much as 15%. The resale value may not be a factor, but if it is you don’t want to forget how much work they involve.
Swimming pools are also a safety responsibility and you also need to factor in the cost of additional electricity into the budgeting process.
If you’re going to have a pool constructed, here are a few things to consider:

- Fiberglass pools are delivered to your home in one piece, set into an excavated area in the backyard and are almost immediately ready to use.
