Should you repair your pool before listing your home for sale?

Sacramento summers are hot!!!  What better way to cool off than by jumping into your very own pool? Any buyer will tell you, many of the desirable homes in Sacramento include an in-ground pool. However, the maintenance and repairs on a pool can be burdensome. Below we describe some common repairs we see when purchasing a home that includes a pool. 

Repairing a Leak

A leaky pipe can range from a mess to make your pool unusable. If you believe your pool has a leak, a professional will evaluate your system and find the problem. In as little as two hours, a professional can scan all pipes and locate the leak. However, the scanning technology is not cheap running up to $500 for the scan. In addition, when the leak is found it will cost an estimated $500 to $5,000 depending on the location of the leak.

Tile Repair

Pool tile can become cracked due to damage, like something heavy falling on it, or it can simply wear down over time.  Both examples will affect the look of the pool. Many clients describe to us the difficulty in locating a few tiles to replace the broken tiles. Several clients were advised by their real estate agent to re-tile the entire pool, costing them hundreds of dollars.  

Plastering the Pool

Expect to spend between $2,500 and $5,000 to replaster the pool. If you have etching in your pool, replastering may be necessary to avoid algae growth and give your pool that nice, smooth feel.
