Pool Care this Summer

If you are thinking about selling your home, and have a pool then these tips should interest you. I cannot tell you how many homes I have shown where the pool is like, "yuk". Even a clean pool that is cracked and stained is not very appealing to potential buyers. We all want to see a clean, updated, not cracked pool that is inviting and safe to swim in. A pool's condition can make or break a sale as well as lower or increase the value of your home.

*Make sure your pool equipment is in good working order. Pool equipment such as pumps and filters tell a story about your maintenance history. All pool equipment will break down if the pool chemicals have not been kept at the right levels, etc.
*Check for cracks in the pool itself and concrete decking. Those can be easily filled in and make a huge difference when viewing the pool.
*Remove water stains from pool tile. Most pool companies carry stain remover for the mineral build up on the tiles. Take some time and a little elbow grease and make your pool sparkle!

Anything you can do to improve the looks and functionality of your pool, yard, and home will help sell your house quicker for the highest price.
