When searching for a home to buy, there’s one feature that can often stop people dead right where they are, one that often proves the decisive factor when weighing up all of the options. A swimming pool is the ultimate accessory for any home and can make the distinction between a good house and an exceptional house.

Approximately 30 years ago, having a swimming pool was regarded an extravagance as well as suggested a certain degree of wealth. Should you knew of someone who owned one, you’d walk out your way to become their best friends, particularly if you were significant distance from a lake, river or the ocean.

Very simple above ground kit set swimming pools were quite popular within the 80s and in ground pools were quickly making their presence felt. The sizes and shapes available were relatively limited and the prices were out of reach for many home owners.

Now days, pools are made from a variety of materials and they’re also available in a number of colours, sizes and shapes. The demand for pools is much higher now and so more and more people are in the pool-building industry. It has helped bring down the prices, meaning they’re a viable home fixture option for people of nearly all incomes.

Should you fly over some of the warmer and much more exotic areas of the world where houses (or mansions) range in excess of millions of dollars in value, you’ll find that a lot more than 50% of them have a wonderfully large swimming pool. If you do not travel much, you simply have to view television to see how many lavish homes have swimming pools that sit on the edge of sections that overlook the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. The idea of owning a home such as this is sufficient to wet anyone’s appetite.

And if you’re in the house buying market, don’t be surprised should you stumble across a house having a pool. This may be precisely what clinches the offer.
