Wouldn’t it be great to be able to afford the home of your dreams?
You know the one – it has a huge yard; beautiful landscaping; a decent security system; a patio built for entertaining; an inground pool and more?
Since we all have budgets, and our budgets are defined by our families’ needs, getting the home of our dreams is not usually possible.
It is possible, however, to satisfy a few “dream” requests, because McGarr Realty experts know that other families have been there before you, and may be selling a home they previously upgraded with a few of your wish list items.
Like owning a home with a pool, for example.
Or a beautiful patio, built for entertaining.
You have to trust us on this one: Homes with your wish list upgrades are still out there in Niagara’s market, and we have found them in places where your budget will hardly even feel a pinch.
Pools in the backyard come in all shapes and sizes, from “kiddie” versions to full inground pools with diving boards and slides. No matter the size, owning a home with a pool in the backyard can become a focal point for a family’s summer fun, enabling bonding and enjoyment of the outdoors.
Let’s talk about some other benefits of owning a home with a pool:
We could go on with this list, but we think families hang back because they feel owning a home with a pool can get expensive, and that safety might be an issue.
Running the pump at nighttime gives some relief to hydro costs, and as we said, it’s fairly easy to establish a family safety routine.
Some tips from our McGarr Realty experts include: giving children wintertime swimming lessons; always following the buddy system, with an adult present and watching out for young ones; very young children should swim with approved personal flotation devices, such as water wing jackets or vests, and the adult in charge should always have access to a cellphone in case of accidents.
As your children get older and your family becomes extended, your grandchildren will love coming to visit – the McGarr Realty team knows this from experience!
Quite simply, a pool is an awesome place to gather.
