I am so sorry no one answered your question. I believe many could benefit from this question and all its answers. Buying a home in Strongsville, OH with a pool. First there are insurance liability concerns when you purchase a home with a pool. I would advise talking to an insurance professional before making the purchase. Hopefully the pool has already conformed to city requirements, this would be something to check on also. Then the question comes is it an in ground pool or above ground? An above ground pool is much easier to remove if you get tired of the maintenance/expense involved. An in ground pool is another animal, would be very expensive to remove and not a good idea (sinking fill).
The pros of having your own pool: You control when and whom swim. You have privacy versus public pools or development pools. As an agent here in Strongsville, I live in a development with a community pool (as many developments here have pools) and Strongsville has a wonderful Rec Center with a beautiful indoor pool. I certainly would enjoy my own pool though and can see the attraction.
