My husband and I were renters and we waited to buy a house for a very long time. Location was the most important factor and when we finally found a house in the perfect location...we just happened to became pool owners too. Neither of us grew up with a pool and we didn't necessarily want one but having a pool wasn't a deal breaker considering everything else we liked about the property. I do have kids that will be teenagers soon and I hope to improve this pool as much as I can so we can enjoy it and also make it more appealing for resale several years down the line.
