What to Check When Buying a Home with a Pool
—Negotiate a better home purchase price with a pool inspection
Seeking a new home with outdoor space for keeping cool, entertaining, and exercising? Many people are, and for these reasons, some house hunters see the advantage of buying a home with an existing inground swimming pool. With a ready-made backyard resort, you can begin enjoying a private aquatic leisure center on move-in day.
Many homebuyers prefer an empty yard to build a pool to their personal specifications. But for homes that happen to come with swimming pools already in the ground, take the right steps to protect your investment: Before closing escrow, you will want to know about the pool and the condition of its structure and equipment systems.
Whether or not you’ve previously owned a home with a backyard pool, it’s important to arrange for an expert evaluation of the condition of the pool at the home you may soon call your own. Just like a house typically undergoes a professional inspection before escrow closes, so, too, should a pool and spa.
A thorough pool inspection should assure a potential buyer of several key issues, ranging from the elevation of the deck surface to the functionality of the pool pump.
The inspection is based on a visual inspection with recommendations based on the findings and professional opinion of the inspector.
The inspector will check all areas of the pool, the normal operation of the system, the electrical, the plumbing and even the safety features of the pool and provide the proper recommendations for corrections and improvement.
We perform inspections on residential or commercial properties, also, for the process of buying or just for the peace of mind.
