Reconsider putting in a pool





Having your own private pool sounds like a neat idea, but in reality, most homeowners quickly grow tired of the cost and responsibilities required to maintain it. Buyers tend to lose interest when they consider what it will mean to have a pool – including that it could increase their homeowner’s insurance rate and be an unattractive eyesore in the winter months when leaves and debris collect on top of the pool cover.


Renovating and customizing your home can be a fun experience, but it’s definitely important to keep in mind what the changes will mean for your home’s resale value later on.
