There are three kinds of home buyers: those who seek the most value for their money, those who have money and those who are willing to buy the worst deal and turn the property around. The last group is rare, but they are the kinds of buyers who will happily take on a truly crummy estate and renovate it to a jewel.
Anyone who buys a house with a pool, whether clean or dirty, is very lucky. Not only is it a luxury not everybody has, it is really easy to turn around. For the sake of conversation, assume that the pool needs work. For any potential buyers, is it a turn-off or an opportunity?
Acacia Pools suggests that if the real estate presents good value or is just downright cheap because of the dirty pool, do not turn it down. Consider location and renovation potential and you will see something that is worth the effort.
Buried Beneath is the Dream
Dream houses, truly, do not exist. Either there is something wrong with a house, usually a deal breaker, or it needs building from the ground up. Existing houses will always need more; some take a great deal of effort. But, beneath the tainted exteriors and the pool full of dry water is a veritable gem; it just needs a little more polishing.
There are always contractors who will take on the dirty work. The lot of them will not shy away from open floor boards or plywood to see the state of the interiors and pools.
It is easy to sanitise a dirty pool. All of it will take time and further investment, but the savings on buying an old house should go somewhere.
Many people have done it before, and it is also nice to have a challenge. A home will only be home once the homeowner puts the work necessary to make the space his or her own. To turn an ugly duckling into a swan, that should do it.
