HOME POOL INSPECTIONS

01-home-pool-inspections.jpg

Homes with pools are a hot commodity on the real estate market. Whether people are buying or selling, it seems like homes with a pool sell faster and for more money than comparable homes without one. But when you try to buy or sell a house with a pool, you need to determine the pool's condition before the sale. 

Do home inspectors check pools? In short, no. When it comes to real estate pool inspection, you need a dedicated pool inspector to analyze the pool to know whether it will be an asset or a liability to the home's sale. A home inspector pool inspection is mostly a myth. You need to call a professional pool inspector aside from the home inspector to get the answers you're looking for before selling a home with a pool.

Benefits of Home Pool Inspections

Conducting a professional pool inspection and understanding the true value of a home go hand in hand. Here are the major benefits of hiring a professional to conduct home pool inspections:

  • Follow all regulations: Every state and locality has specific regulations pool owners must follow. These regulations can impact the sale of the home. For instance, many towns could have a regulation demanding that all properties with a pool must also contain a fence. The fence must meet its own requirements like height, gate regulations, construction materials, and more. A professional pool inspection will ensure the property meets all pool-related regulations. 

  • Know if the pool is in good shape: A bad pool can cost homeowners a lot of money in repairs, fixes and even replacements. A pool inspection will reveal whether the pool is an asset to the property or a huge money pit in the near future. 

  • Understand the pool's electric and plumbing needs: A pool inspector can discover if a property's pool has any issues with its plumbing or electrical systems. Pools use a lot of electrical and plumbing components to work, and no homeowner wants to discover those issues after the sale. 

  • Get information on the surrounding deck: Many properties have a deck around the pool. In-ground pool inspectors can inspect these pool decks to give further details on the property's true value. 

  • Discover if any equipment needs repair or replacement: Pools have many crucial parts, including the heater, filter system, pump and more. It's a lot to keep track of, and a professional pool inspector will check it all so you can better know the actual condition of a property's pool.
