Considerations when buying a home with a pool

January 22, 2020

 | 

Thanks to the great climate here in Northeast Florida, the chances of seeing homes for sale with a pool are very good.

 

In addition to boosting the resale value of a home, owning a pool can offer lots of additional advantages. But owning a pool is not to be taken lightly. If you have ever owned a home with a pool, you already know the upsides and downsides. If not, consider these points before diving into swimming pool ownership.

 

Owning a pool is proven to benefit your health. Having a pool can offer big advantages for your physical and mental health. Swimming has proven itself to be perhaps the best form of exercise. It is low-impact with big cardiovascular benefits. And you don’t need to be a lap swimmer to reap the benefits of your pool! Light water aerobics or just wading around your pool can help you build mobility and endurance without the harsh impact on your joints. This is especially helpful in the hot summer months when you can stay cool in the water. In addition to offering a private place for exercise, your pool is a place for de-stressing and emotional relaxation.

Seven reasons homebuyers love Northeast Florida

Posted by in News

People give all kinds of reasons for moving to Florida from the great weather and beautiful beaches to job opportunities and abundant golfing.

 

But I like to dig a little deeper and let buyers know why Northeast Florida specifically is hands-down the best place to live in the Sunshine State.

 

 1.) Our price points are excellent by comparison. The Jacksonville metropolitan area (Duval, Baker, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns counties) is known for price points that are much better than other parts of the state, making this a really affordable option for budget-minded buyers looking to enjoy living in Florida.

 

2.) We have fewer storms than many parts of Florida. Thanks to our unique geography, Northeast Florida is a little less hurricane-prone than most other parts of the state (and even many parts of the Carolinas). Nevertheless, you will want to seek out a home that meets Florida’s strict building codes in case of a storm. Also, strongly consider getting flood insurance if you buy in a flood zone.
