Pool Communities in Clayton, NC
Summer is here in Clayton, North Carolina and the pools are open. A must have for some folks who are looking for a home in the area is either the home have a pool or the neighborhood has a community pool. There is a big difference between owning your own pool and being in a pool community obviously and you can buy a house in a pool community and never use the pool but if you buy a house with a pool, you need to be aware of what’s involved. I have had a number of clients who can’t wait to be done with the pool, mostly people whose kids have grown up and moved out and the pool dosent get used, still needs to be cleaned and maintained though.
Buying A Home With A Pool
Sadly a pool is not a good investment and home sellers often get sticker shock when they see what an appraiser will give them for a pool that may have cost a small fortune. But that shouldn’t be the point of putting in a pool rather the enjoyment you and your family and friends will derive from it. If you are putting in a pool or you’re going a buy a home with a pool and you have kids..they will be the most popular kids in the neighborhood. The upside to having a home with a pool to sell is that there are a certain number of home buyers in a lot of markets who are specifically looking for a home with a pool so if your home is in their price range they come see it.

How Much Does It Cost To Join The Pool?
Pool Communities are all different with how they operate and who they allow in their pools. In some pool communities in Clayton only the residents are allowed become members and use the pool. Other pools are open to outside membership and so anyone can join the pool the bigger ones usually. How the community charges residents for the pool can vary by subdivision with some including the use of the pool in the HOA dues, others charge a separate fee for the pool and so you have the option of joining or not. Some communities in Clayton are owned by the same developer and so membership to the pool includes all of the pools, specifically, Riverwood Athletic Club, Lions Gate and Tralee. There are a number of communities that have pools but you would never know it as they are smaller and offer just enough water to get wet.

In Ground Or Above Ground Pools And Neighborhoods That Don’t Allow Either
Not everyone has the means or cares to spend the money to have a pool installed but they do want the fun of having their own pool in their back yard. The answer is an above ground pool, an affordable alternative but one which does require some work and maintenance and the cost of chemicals as well. Add in a nice deck and some privacy fencing and summer boredom can be eliminated or partially anyway. It’s very important when you are buying a home in Clayton and you are planning on getting an above ground pool that the community allows them. Ask your Realtor© to get the restrictive covenants for the neighborhood and contact the HOA management company and ask them. Some neighborhoods in Clayton do not allow in-ground pools so if you were planning on eventually putting in a pool make sure you will be allowed to.
