Have you always wanted to own a house that has a swimming pool as part of the landscaping? Maybe you have been looking for quite some time and you have found the pool home of your dreams. On the other hand, maybe you are just now starting your search. If that's the case, you've come to the right place for ideas on how to proceed.
Before you meet with a real estate agent, think of having a clear picture in your mind of exactly the kind of pool house you want. Write down the essential elements you've come up with so you can present them to the real estate agent.
Start With The Landscape Design - Since your focus is on having a pool, think of what you want the backyard to include. For instance, do you want the swimming pool to dominate the backyard? That will mean that you won't have a lot of yard work to take care of. Maybe you want your pool to be set in a yard that has elaborate landscaping that will add beauty to the pool area. If you enjoy entertaining guests, does that mean that the backyard should include a patio area with an outdoor kitchen? Finally, what style of pool do you want? Do you want a traditional pool, or do you want the kind of pool you might find at a five-star resort? Maybe you want a hot tub as part of the swimming pool — or at least close to the swimming pool.
Select The Type Of House You Want - Obviously, you won't be spending all of your time in your swimming pool, though that might sound inviting. What kind of house do you want to go with your pool? Are you interested in a large luxury home that has state-of-the-art features as part of the home design? Maybe you want a small home that will be very easy to maintain. Consider, too, whether you want a one-story home, a two-story home, or a home with a multi-level design. How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want the home to have? Will you want one great room, or do you prefer having separate living areas that include a dining room, a living room, a family room, and even an entertainment room?
Once you have established the kind of landscaping you want and the kind of home you want, take your ideas to a real estate agent in your area. He or she will have the knowledge to take you to the kind of home you want.
