3 Helpful Tips and Financing Options for First-Time Pool Buyers

Ready to enjoy the luxury of your own swimming pool? HFS Financial can help you pay!

It’s almost swimming season! What’s not to love? While some people rely on crowded communal pools, vacation resorts, or friends who are pool owners to satisfy their urge to swim – others fall short. Without access to a swimming pool, you stand to miss out on one of the greatest summer past times known to man.

Are you ready to take the plunge and become a pool owner? This is a large investment that requires serious consideration. HFS Financial is here with three helpful tips and financing options for first-time pool buyers. Let’s jump in!

Above Ground or Inground? Decisions, Decisions

One of the most important decisions you will have to make as a first-time pool buyer is whether you want an aboveground or inground swimming pool. Do you have a vision in mind? Do you plan to live on your current property forever?  Aboveground pools are less expensive, but often much smaller and not as visually striking. While desired aesthetics and function play a large role in this decision, it also depends on various factors including your budget, the available space on your property, and the permits you are able to obtain.

Take all Potential Complications Into Account

Obtaining necessary permits is all part of the first-time pool buyer experience. After all, if you decide on an inground pool that requires hefty digging for installation, it’s important to ensure that this process will not interfere with any underground wiring or plumbing that is already in place. You should take all potential complications into account including the slope of your land, local zoning laws, neighborhood rules, and necessary space for all of the amazing features you want. None of these factors should deter you from the pool-buying process, but it’s best to prepare yourself for the possibility of having to jump through a few hoops to get what you want just in case any issues do arise.

What is Your Desired Time Frame for Installation?

If you want a swimming pool and you want it fast, an aboveground pool is your best bet. Aboveground pools take far less time to install than inground swimming pools, although inground swimming pools can offer unparalleled value and beauty. When you work with one of our swimming pool dealers, they can help ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. The time it takes to complete the installation of an inground pool depends on various factors including the type of pool you choose. For example, fiberglass pools can take as little as a few days to install whereas concrete and vinyl swimming pools can take several weeks.
