If you can’t afford to purchase a pool with cash you’ve saved up, you will probably want to finance it. Don’t finance a pool that you cannot afford the monthly payments, pool service and increases in utilities. Talk with us and let us know what you can afford on a monthly basis and we can help determine what the increased utility bills may be, the cost for service and the payback of any kind of loan.
5 ways to pay for your new pool
- Talk with a loan officer at the bank where you typically do your business. It’s easier to get a loan through a bank you have a history with. You may even be able to get an unsecured loan with the pool as collateral.
- Depending on the amount of equity in your home you could refinance it to pay for the pool.
- You could take out a home improvement loan. Many mortgage lenders consider a pool as an improvement to the home – one that ultimately adds to the resale value. Loans for home improvement come in three, five, or 10 year installment plans. Choose one that has a monthly payment that is comfortable for you to repay.
- Some pool contractors offer to finance themselves
- Determine how much it will cost then set aside that money so you can pay cash for the project.
