    A Pool in Your New Jersey Home

    A swimming pool is an enjoyable—and expensive—luxury in any home. But in some households, the reasons far outweigh the cost, and the expense is well-worth the price.

    First of all, a pool is a perfect venue for exercise. Daily exercise is a good way to keep fit, but some exercises are better than others. Swimming is a great whole body exercise that is low-impact; this means that it is not as demanding as other sports like running or basketball. Additionally, it forces people to use their entire body, making it the perfect cardiovascular workout.

    Second, it is a great place for family and friends to relax. Having your own pool at home makes it easier to relax and have a good time. It can be a great social centerpiece; just invite people and have a barbecue as the kids romp in the pool.

    Third, a pool can increase one’s home’s value. Pools are expensive to build and maintain. However, because they are usually worth the trouble, many prospective homeowners think of them as worth the price. The National Association of Realtors recently discovered that a pool can add five percent to a home’s value. This means a $400,000 home can receive a $20,000 bonus with a pool installed.

    For all of these reasons, swimming pools are a great investment for one’s lifestyle and overall home value.
