Thinking About A Scottsdale Home With A Pool

When searching for a home, you might consider getting a home in Scottsdale with a pool. Arizona does get hot so a pool might sound like a sweet reprieve. Many would agree with you. That being said, make sure you understand the costs associated with owning a pool. 

Annual Cost of Owning A Home With A Pool

First off, there is an annual cost to keeping up with having a pool. Think about water, electric to run the pump, chemicals to keep the water balanced and more. 

According to HomeAdvisor.com, you can "expect to spend between $1,200 and $1,800 per year in basic upkeep. Combined with swimming pool repairs and utilities, homeowners can spend as much as $3,000 to $5,000 per year to keep it in good, working condition."

Upkeep For The Pool

On top of the basic cost to upkeep a Scottsdale home with a pool, you also have to think about the actual maintence of owning a pool. A pool must be kept cleaned. A pool must be checked reguarly. A pool's chemicals must be maintained. Of course, you are more than welcome to do those things yourself. If you want some help though, you can expect to pay $100-$200 a month for pool maintence help.
