If you’re thinking of buying a home with a pool, there are some considerations you should take into account. If you’re looking into pool inspections, here are a few basics to help with the process.
Thinking about pool inspections is something I would highly recommend. A lot of Buyers assume a home inspection would cover a pool inspection, but this is an area I would suggest hiring a pool inspector specifically to evaluate the condition of the pool.
Besides the pool equipment such as the heater and the motor, you will want to ensure there are no leaks and that everything is in great condition. These are costly fixes that could add up quickly.
More often than not, when you buy a home with a pool in it, the pool is probably not in tip-top shape. A brand new pool can cost you anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000, but doing a remodel of the pool is much more affordable, costing only $10,000 to $15,000.
If you are looking for a pool inspection, I have a wonderful contact that has been in the business over 17 years. It’s important with any purchase to evaluate and collect as much information as possible to best understand everything you can about the home you are purchasing.
