Certified Pool Assessment and Inspections

Peace of mind for buyers and sellers

5.3 million homes with in-ground pools.  Approximately 70,000 new pools are built every year.  Today, homebuyers are searching for a home with an in-ground swimming pool based on a “quality of ownership” they can expect.

As a seller wanting to have a more successful transaction, you have to be prepared to answer the key buyer question of today. “Why should I buy your home with a pool instead of buying a home with a blank canvas backyard?”

If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home with a pool, then schedule a PoolFax inspection to make sure this question can be answered.

1. Basic Home Inspections Don’t Include Pools

Most home inspections DO NOT cover the pool when inspecting a home for a potential sale. And if you do get a supplemental pool inspection, what are their credentials for this specialty?  Are they trained in long term pool operations and troubleshooting? Are they a pool service company that is more interested in getting your pool service business than identifying the quality of ownership you can experience?

2. Modern Pool Features Add Market Value and Buyer Confidence

What would be the impact of today’s modern technology and features on the long term value of your home?  Awareness of the latest technologies and features through PoolFax can help you avoid  making a long term liability out of your backyard planning, for both new pool designs and remodels.

3. Quality of Ownership is Often Left to Chance

PoolFax™ offers a new way for homebuyers to assess the quality of ownership they can expect when buying a home with an in-ground swimming pool.
