How do you put a price on the cool, refreshing call of a backyard swimming pool? When that hot Texas sun turns up the temperature, nothing’s as satisfying as a quick dip.
When it comes to turning your backyard into an oasis, you’ve got lot of options. There’s the sort we offer at Creative Pool Designs by Express, including outdoor kitchens, fire pits and waterfalls.
Then there are the many ways you can finance your dream, whether it’s a pool-and-spa combo, a tropical getaway or a customized design fit to your yard. Sure, you can put it on your plastic, assuming you have a robust limit waiting in the wings. But there are easier and more financially friendly ways to make your dream come true:
- You might be able to secure a home-equity loan. Interest rates vary, and you run the risk of losing your home if you can’t keep up the payments. On the bright side, you might be able to write off the interest paid just as you do with your mortgage.
- Are you buying a new home? Depending on how much you are financing, you might be able to fold the cost of installation into your new mortgage. It helps if the pool is expected to increase the value of your home, though that’s not always a guarantee. If you’re building a new home, you might also save on costs by allowing the pool contractor to come in after excavation but before development. One word of warning: Government-supported mortgages often don’t allow pool-installation costs to be included in the mortgage because swimming pools are considered a luxury item.
- Pool builders such as Creative Pool Designs by Express often work with customers on financing their new pools. We’ve teamed up with Lyon Financial and AMS Financial, both of whom specialize in swimming pool loans. Another benefit to working with your dealer: In some cases, you can get a partial refund if you’re not satisfied with the job.
