Why Choose an Inground Pool With Savage Pools & Patios if you Live in Columbus, Ohio?

In-ground pools provide endless recreation and add an aesthetic appeal to your home. They can also boost your property value. If you live in Columbus, Ohio, an in-ground fiberglass pool or vinyl pool can be a great investment that will pay off both now and in the future. Here are a few good reasons to choose an in-ground pool if you live in Columbus.

Climate Considerations

Columbus isn't exactly tropical, but it does get hot and humid in the summer months, which these days can stretch from May until October. Although the winters can be cold and gray, that doesn't mean you have to cover your pool and leave it dormant until Memorial Day. In-ground pools can be heated, giving you and your family a refreshing place to warm up on those nippy afternoons.

Increased Property Value

Installing an in-ground pool can increase the value of your home when you go to sell it. Most homeowners find that the appraised value of their home goes up by more than they paid for the pool -- and that value will only increase over time, especially in today's tight real estate market.

An in-ground pool not only increases the value of your home in raw dollar terms, but it can also expand the potential pool (no pun intended) of buyers. Many families with kids will choose a home with a pool over a comparable home without one. All other variables equal, houses with in-ground pools have greater curb appeal than those without.

If you're set on a pool but debating between in-ground and above-ground, just know that most studies indicate above-ground pools have the opposite effect on curb appeal and property values. They tend to detract from curb appeal and reduce the value of your home. Why would you want to spend thousands of dollars on something that will make your house uglier and worth less?

Community and Social Benefits

Remember back in school how everyone wanted to get invited to the kid's house who had a pool in his or her backyard? Having an in-ground pool confers a host of social benefits for you and your kids. Your house can be the "it" house in the neighborhood where people gather on summer afternoons, and your kids and their friends will never lack an entertainment source. Wouldn't you rather them spend their time outside getting sun and exercise than zoned out in front of Fortnite?
