So you’re thinking about splashing out and buying a pool? Beyond keeping cool in summer, there are plenty of good reasons, including financial, to install a pool. Here are our top 3 reasons why today’s the day to visit a SPASA WA member and dive into your pool investment:
1. Make your home more attractive to potential buyers
According to Roy Morgan research, Swimming pool ownership is rising in Australia, with about 2.7 million Aussies living in a house with a swimming pool. In 2015, the figure equated to 12% of the population.
Today, that figure has grown to 13% of the equivalent population as our love affair with pools grows. Perth is the leading capital city in Australia for pool ownership with 19% of the population having a backyard swimming pool.
Whilst there is no substantive evidence to link pools to house price, indicators suggest a pool does help your house stand out and therefore could push up the asking price and reduce the selling time.
2. Create a stylish and relaxing entertainment area
The Aussie lifestyle is all about the great outdoors and what better way to celebrate than with a bbq and a dip in the pool! Pools aren’t the daggy 80s landscape they used to be with a single palm tree and red brick paving.
The expertise in designing fully integrated pools into a beautiful landscape complete with alfresco areas has come a long way. Today’s pool is more of a stylish extension of the house and a place to spend time, not just swim. Speak to the landscapers at the SPASA WA Pool Spa & Outdoor Living Expo to see how you can turn your backyard pool area into an oasis.
3. Jump into quality family time
Spending quality time with the family can be hard these days, especially when competing with the iPad, eSports and Netflix. A pool is the best physical activity you can invest in for your kids and nothing connects your family like a pool or a spa.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and add value to your home and life, don’t miss the SPASA WA Pool, Spa & Outdoor Living Expo at the Claremont Showgrounds (check our website for updates). Packed with pools, spas, pool equipment, outdoor cooking appliances and equipment, and showcasing the best in landscaping and plants, you’re sure to find everything you need to create your very own dream backyard!
See you there!
