Encourage family time: When you build a pool, you’re actually creating a fun and relaxing space for your children and family to spend time together…without ever leaving the backyard! You’ll make lasting memories as you teach your kids to swim, play with them in the pool, and bar-b-que by the water.
Create an outdoor resort at home: A well-designed swimming pool isn’t just a bunch of water. It can turn your backyard into an elegant outdoor oasis. With waterfalls, vanishing edges and other unique amenities, a pool can serve as a relaxing and inviting centerpiece right in your own backyard.
Increase the value of your home: Recent studies show that owning a pool increases the value of your home by as much as 15%. It also makes your property more attractive to prospective home buyers. If it comes time to move, owning a pool may be the difference between selling your home quickly or keeping it on the market.
Save some money: A pool is easier to finance and maintain than most people think. And in the long run, pools are less expensive than big family vacations and other entertainment options – and they last longer.
The 3 biggest mistakes a homeowner can make when deciding on a pool
1) Focusing Solely on Price: It bugs me that I even need to mention this but... I guess I must. It always baffles me to hear a customer say they want a great, great super-low price (“I want the cheapest pool you've got!”) but they also expect great, great quality and even better service... Huh?
There is an old saying I once heard. It goes something like this: "All of your customers want you as a business to make money and turn a profit. They just don't want you to make any money on them." Hmmm... This quote certainly holds true for some shoppers, but I find the majority understand that in order to deal with a reputable, steady company where quality and service are a fundamental component of the building and installing process, then the company must make money.
