Carlsbad Homes with Pools – Enjoy Southern California Outdoor Living

Carlsbad Homes for Sale with Pools

Enjoy Southern California Outdoor Living Year-Round

 

Home buyers interested in buying a Carlsbad home with a pool have a number of options.

 

Carlsbad home with a pool for saleSome buyers are open to spending money to build a pool if there isn’t one.

 

But many want that pool already in place – and want a private one, not a community pool. They are willing to take on the maintenance issues, or will pay a service to manage them.

 

Buying a Carlsbad home that offers a pool provides a great place to live, entertain and even exercise all year round, with few exceptions.

 

Once you find the pool home that works for your needs it’s important to do your due diligence. This means having a pool inspection as part of the home inspection process, checking into the cost of home owners insurance, estimating additional utility and water costs, and deciding if you want the added maintenance yourself or prefer to have a pool service (I can recommend a good one I have referred to several clients who thrilled and recommend the company).

 

Pool home in Carlsbad CAWhen requesting the home warranty from the seller, you will also want to specify coverage for the pool and/or spa to be include (there’s a higher cost if salt water).

 

As a pool home buyer you should also check local restrictions regarding fencing (type, height, need for any alarms) and possibly other requirements in Carlsbad – you want to be sure your home and pool comply from a safety perspective.

 

Keep in mind requirements may have changed from the time the house and pool were built. And some of this is just common sense and peace of mind for your family!

 

Carlsbad homes with pools may offer many options, from elaborate to simple, so consider what’s important to you and what is a trade-off:

 

slides and diving boards

water features

attached or detached spa

solar heat or none at all

salt water filtration systems vs. chlorine

exercise/lap pools

swim-up bars

vinyl vs. plaster

elaborate or minimal hardscape

 

Carlsbad homes with pools can be found in a wide range of prices, from about $600,000 to well into the millions. Home sizes also vary, and you find them in  variety of neighborhoods.

 

And don’t forget ANY home in Carlsbad has access to the biggest pool in the world – our Pacific Ocean!
