Financing :

Did you know that a pool will not only add beauty to your home, it can also add value to it as well? Banks and other financial lenders will often look favorably on pool financing because they see it as “home improvement” which can add value to your home and eventually the resale value. Home equity  loans can provide tax advantages as well. It’s important to have the financing arranged by experienced professionals, to make sure your options are fully met and explained to you.

There are a variety of ways to get a pool loan.  A bank is a good place to find  out what options you may have.  A home equity loan is the best type of secured loan. It is available on your property if you have been in your home for 1 year, have a good credit history and have equity available on your home.  Another available option is an unsecured loan, which can be obtained by qualified buyers for up to $30,000. Qualifying for an unsecured loan depends on your debt ratio and credit scores.  Many customers are also turning to short term loans on 401K’s, to temporarily pay for the pool .  Then later, as home values rise, these loans can be repaid with an equity loan. Many banks are familiar with all these options.
