Dreaming of a Pool Home?  There are pros and cons to owning a home with a pool.  

The balance will shift from one real estate market to the next, based on the climate.  It will vary based on whether your home is smaller, in a lower priced neighborhood or a luxury home surrounded by other pool homes.  Last but not least is how much you and your family will enjoy having your own pool.

As pool season heats up, this article looks at the pros and cons of owning a pool.  It includes links to valuable articles from +Bill Gassett +Kyle Hiscock +Anita Clark +houzz and +HGTV

Tagline
Full time Las Vegas Realtor and Desert Rat who loves sunny warm to HOTTT Summer days in the pool. Mom to 2 dogs and 2 parrots.
Introduction
Full time Las Vegas Realtor with over 10 years experience in The Las Vegas Luxury Homes and High Rise market.  Yes, we've lived through the boom, the bust and now the recovery.   
During that time, I've earned numerous designations, including the CRS, CNE and sold homes that ranged from entry level to luxury homes and high rise properties.

In 2007, Michael Petit, became my partner in real estate.  Between the two of us, we work all areas of the Valley.  We have helped numerous buyers and sellers.  We especially enjoy helping new homeowners from other areas discover all the neighborhoods available to them and all the great things Las Vegas has to offer.

When not helping clients with their real estate needs, we tend to be exploring one of the many nearby parks like Death Valley, enjoying a play at the Smith Center, a concert on the Strip, dinner in our favorite restaurants or throwing something on the grill for dinner and a dip in the pool.
