Mira Lagos is a great place to live. If you are asking will the HOA allow you to have a pool, I would think yes, but we can check the HOA documents. There are other homes that have pools. One thing you want to check is the survey to check utility easements and other easements like drainage that could interfere with pool building if this is important to you.

These are all things we can put in the contract or check out during the option period if it is important to you.

Great response, many agents wouldn't of even thought of checking on the utility easements. I can't tell you how many horror stories I've heard about poor representation... Someone purchasing a house that's not zoned for horses, building of barns and or inability to put in a pool.

Mira Lagos HOA has an Architectural Committee and a simple form to fill out. I have added an outside fireplace, porch addition, a covering in wood (Pergola) and pool in the last several years.

That sounds like quiet the extensive exterior renovation. I'm in the process of have a pergola put in this fall and a pool next spring. I would like to see what your recommendations might be for a pool company, mason and or patio builder. I've had pro touch out here already and they gave me an estimate that was insanely high for just the Pergola. Its seems every mason I'm uncovering that has 15+years experience is working for a builder and has no time and or next to no experience with no online reviews/testimonials.

FYI- if you're a part of the next door neighbor app. you've probably seen my posting in the past if not you need to be lol. Thanks again.

Hi Victoria,

As you saw from other agent's respond that pool is ok but you can also consider using the community first before investing in a private pool as you only will get about half of it back when you sell.

Please let me know if you need any help finding a place. I would be happy to help.

Good Afternoon Victoria,

I live in the Mira Lagos subdivision and they do allow pools. There is a small percentage of homeowners that have pools in the backyard due to the community pools that living in the subdivision offers. I would love the opportunity to earn your business and assist you on purchasing your new home! Please feel free to contact me at any time if I can be of assistance!

Make it a Great Day!

That is something you will definitely need to check out directly with the HOA. You can write that into the contract as well.

You'll need to ask your Agent for the phone number for the Management Company. Most HOA's will not answer until you have signed the bylaws and agreements then applied for a pool and have given the set of plans. Sounds a lot worse then it actually is. A great way to see if your neighbors have pools would be to look at the Google Maps!
