2) Homes with Pool,
Pools are good and look impressive, and best if you can afford but if you are penny saver, then avoid
Here are some reasons that might be handy when you think
1)Mosquitoes and water bugs are drawn to swimming pools, especially during peak season. Skimming the pool's surface to remove insects helps, but frequent skimming is time-consuming
2) Recreational water-related illnesses such as ear and respiratory infections, rashes and diarrhea are caused by exposure to water contaminated with germs
3) As if your energy bills weren't high enough during the hot summer months, add an in-ground pool to the mix and they will climb even higher. You could end up paying an extra $50 a month just for the additional electricity required to run the pool pump and such, according to NerdWallet.com.
If you have a pool that's heated, you'll spend much more. The cost to run a pool heater averages between $100 and $600 a month. The low estimate is for a heat pump, and the high estimate is for an electrical resistance heater. A gas heater, which is the most common type of pool heater and uses either natural gas or propane, runs $200 to $400 a month.
4)Homeowners with pools only saw a 50% return on investment at resale, according to the National Association of Realtors' latest remodeling impact report
5)Since homeowners with pools face the potential for pool-related injuries or even deaths, insurance providers commonly refer to residential pools as "attractive nuisances." For this reason, you should consider increasing your liability coverage beyond what's already offered through your homeowners insurance policy. Taking out a personal umbrella insurance policy is a good way to do this.
6)Many localities require a safety barrier to be installed around a residential pool to help prevent accidental drownings. "There should be a fence completely surrounding the pool area
7)A tear in a swimming pool's lining, a protective layer applied to the pool before it's filled, is a common repair encountered by homeowners. The liner acts as a barrier between the pool walls/floor and water, and it helps prevent mold growth. Vinyl lining is popular largely due to its affordability. Expect to pay $200, on average, to have a professional repair a tear in a vinyl liner. If the tear is small enough, you may be able to repair it yourself with a vinyl pool liner patch kit (starting at $6 on Amazon). If the entire liner needs to be replaced, plan to pay a pro a minimum of $1,700 for parts and labor.
8)If you don't clean the pool yourself, which requires purchasing equipment and administering chemicals, you'll need to hire a pool maintenance service -- and that expense can add up quickly. For example, the average cost to maintain a standard 14-feet-by-28-feet pool is $177 a week.
