It’s time to start thinking about summer in Albuquerque and buying that home you always wanted with a swimming pool. Why? Because the numbers tell us it’s time. Lets look at the data… The average home buyer spends 12 weeks in home search process. The average escrow time (from contract to final closing) is 40 days. Add at least another week for move in, that put us smack in the middle of May, perfect season to enjoy that pool!
We have a couple resources on this site to help you find homes for sale with a swimming pool. Visit our Homes with a Pool page to browse by price or area, and learn things to consider when buying a home with a pool. Swimming pools come in all shapes and sizes (literally) and are definitely not created equal. The most common type we see are in-ground and can be Gunite (cement), Vinyl, or Fiberglass construction and can have many different features. You will also find above ground (in general lower quality than in-ground), or community pools.
One last note… it you decide to get a home with a pool be sure to do your due diligence and get appropriate inspections and learn what maintenance and upkeep is needed.
