Pool Homes in Frisco Texas

Pool home in Frisco Texas

It's that time of year again! Afternoon temperatures are over 100 degrees and everyone is looking for a way to cool off. While there are municipal and community pools, many homes in Frisco, Texas have in-ground pools. Personal pools offer privacy and a much quiet and relaxed atmosphere.

While some home buyers will opt to put in a new pool, we strongly encourage potential buyers to look for a Frisco Texas home where the pool is already installed. Installing a new pool is very costly and those owners never recoup the cost at the sale. It would be far more cost effective to purchase a home with a pool and remodel the kitchen and the baths.

Tom, I agree. Pools never return the value of their original cost. Look for a home with an existing pool.

There is no reason they shouldn't be able to find an amazing home with an existing pool in Frisco.

Tom- For somea pool is a great place to have family fun, to others is a costly thing to keep up. Ithink your right, find a home with one.. Usually much cheaper then buidling it.

We've had a great summer so far where you can still get in the pool (not renamed the bigger spa) and it's August!

We have a beautiful community pool that hardly gets used and friends that invite us to swim so we are keeping the money in our bank :)

I love a house with a pool. We have a community pool right now, but one day, I'll own a house with a pool. We had one growing up as kids and despite all the work it was, I still want one!

Very true. Whatever the cost you will not see the recouped, UNLESS its a common attribute for the area then appraiser will give it significantly more value and so will the home buyers. Still I agree its far easier to remod an interior room than to install a pool

Tom, great topic to have buyers who wants pools be attracted to your services.  Perfect example of drilling down on the internet to get specific buyers.

When you live in a warm climate, having your own pool is like being on vacation, on those hot summer days!  Clever idea to list those properties with existing pools so that buyers can find them easily.

Believe it or not, I was surprised when I moved to So. New Hampshire that people really didn't care much about pools.  I think this is because we have such a short summer.  Good advice for those who want a pool, to buy a home that already has one.

Great to have a pool, except for some of the major expenses associated with it.  Cost me about $1,000 the other day to drain it, fix the pumps and refill it.  Hope that lasts at least another 10 years!

Tom, good advice.  Pools have become very expensive in the last few years.

Hi Tom-the last 3 homes I bought had pools that I totally had to redo to my taste so sometimes the theory just doesn't work. Summer is definitely the time to sell a pool home though!

Our temperatures are perfectly suited to pools. However, our geology is not. It can be quite costly to blast the stone to put in a pool.

So true! In my area it cost about $35,000 to have an in ground pool installed! So if you want a pool buy a home with one already there!
