Clearwater Florida Real Estate | Pool Homes for Sale – Paradise or Backyard Money Pit

Clearwater Real Estate | No Pool Home Surprises Please

We live in a wonderful part of Florida and there’s nothing better than a cool dip in a Clearwater pool at home on a hot summer day. Can’t you just picture floating in your blue backyard pool, relaxing, rejuvenating. This is how it should be…

Now let me tell you what can happen if you don’t do your homework when you’re buying that Clearwater FL Pool Home.

Top Clearwater REALTORS spend the majority of our time working with Tampa Bay Home buyers and are big advocates and believers in Home Inspections. I am a member of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) which allows me to be a resource to my clients through my relationships with some of the areas most accomplished remodeling professionals.  In a state known sometimes for fly-by-night tradesman – referrals to the best remodeling contractors and professionals in the area has proven invaluable. 

In this case, the Clearwater pool professionals at Skinee-Dip Pools & Spas, the largest Tampa Bay area Pool Remodelers and Pool Contractors in the 5 county Tampa Bay area inspected this pool and boy are our Home Buyers lucky they did! They know Tampa Bay pools since they’ve built over 3,000 since 1971 and do over 1000 pool remodels each year. These are the kind of expert resources we bring to our clients…
