Summer isn't over just yet, and if you're ready to jump into owning a home with a pool near Fort Meade, there's still time to snag a property with backyard oasis you've been looking for. Think you can't afford a pool? There are currently over 100 homes for sale in Anne Arundel County that feature pools starting at just $300,000. All within an hour commute to the base.
Pools are a huge attraction in Maryland. Our Summers are hot and there's nothing like ending a day floating in your own backyard pool with family and friends or all by yourself. It's a great place to host a backyard BBQ too. You don't have to visit the tropics to enjoy fruity drinks in the water!
Of course, pools come with a cost and if you're lucky enough to snag a home with a pool they do come with monthly costs between $80 and $150 to have a pool service handle maintenance. You'll also have to open and close your pool each year which will cost you between $250 and $500 each time. If you're looking to save on the monthly budget, you can easily handle your own chemicals and several local pool companies will assess your water sample and provide you with the right chemicals to treat it yourself. But, we find that most people prefer to have the professionals handle this.
If you haven't found your perfect home with a pool, consider buying a home with enough acreage to add a pool in the future. We've got a list of homes in Anne Arundel county that might be a perfect place to add a pool. Be sure to budget $50k to $100k for that upgrade, they do not come cheap, but if you're a homebody, glamming up your backyard with a pool will work out to be inexpensive entertainment in the long run.
