Is your pool turning off buyers?

If your home is listed on MLS and has a pool your missing 95% of the potential buys right of the bat! Removing an existing swimming pool will help you sell your home.  It definitely adds to the number potential buyers,(approximately 95 % more)  and can reduce the amount of time your home is for sale .  In this current buyers market, removing your pool can be a smart choice considering the fact that the cost of doing so could  be much less than what it will cost if your pool prevents your home from selling, or it keeps it on the market for an extended period of time. Before you put your home on the market, You might consider removing your pool. It could put thousands of dollars in your pocket.

Reducing liability and Costs:

Owning a home with a pool adds to your liability and to your insurance premiums ,Rental property with a swimming pool adds a level of liability many owner's find  unacceptable. The fact that fatal drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children under the age of 15 , certainly gives property owners pause when considering renting property that has a swimming pool. From residences that are turned into rentals to apartment complexes, many of these property owners have discovered that removing a swimming pool not only lets them sleep at night, but also greatly reduces their costs. 

Structural failure:

Structural failure is one of the leading reason pools are removed.  Many pools  are 30, 40 even 50 years old. After years of being subjected to conditions like Earthquakes (West Coast) and freezing the pool shell fails. However Not all failures are a result of age. Premature failure can happen as a result of sloppy workmanship or the use of sub-standard materials. Either way the results are the same; the pool no longer holds water.

Pools that outlive their purpose:

Many home owners had their swimming pool built when their families were young. Over  time and circumstances their pools stopped being used. Even after this, most owners continue for years to pay for maintenance and repairs. This constant out-put of money, and the ever present  worry about accidental drowning, coupled with the the fact that the pool isn't used, brings many pool owners to the same conclusion...The swimming pool must go!
