It really depends on which part of the city you are looking to invest in. Throughout the city is a fair share of revitalization.

Hi Janus,

As I'm sure you know, the monthly cost will depend on a lot of factors like the size of the pool, the type of pump, the cost of water and electricity in your area, and whether or not you'll be heating the pool during winter. to get an accurate estimate, you would have to have all that information and give it to a pool professional.

With that said... It looks like the most common cost of pool maintenance is around $75 to $100 per month. This is if you do the maintenance yourself. If you choose to have a professional service do it, then you can probably expect the monthly cost to be closer to $200 or more.

Now keep in mind that I'm not a pool expert, so my numbers could potentially be completely off. My answer is based upon the information I got elsewhere on the internet. Here are some of the sources so you can see for yourself:

http://www.keepyourpoolclean.com/Costs_of_Maintaining_a_new_pool_-_Part_IV.html
http://www.city-data.com/forum/las-vegas/947444-average-monthly-cost-pool-maintenance-water.html

There are ways that you can save money on pool costs as well. One way is to make sure you have a variable speed pump. This type of pump can save you quite a bit every month on electric bills. Another is using a pool cover to keep the pool cleaner, warmer, and reduce evaporation.

I also found this website that spells out ways to reduce your monthly chemical costs. It's called the BBB method -- for bleach, baking soda, and borax as the chemicals to use instead of costly pool chemicals. They explain it better than I ever could so here it is:

I hope this information was helpful

If your MLS does not interface to facebook how about cut and paste??
Or even better why not just talk about it. It will probably come across better than just listing it on facebook.

Jeff - if you are using the ShowingDesk / ShowingTime product through Realcomp, you can customize it on the backend. I use a different product that I pay for, which is more robust. Your front desk should certainly be able to help you with ShowingDesk. ... more

Nhoney,
Codes vary, but generally you need to bolt it to the concrete floor in the garage in front of the water heater and where the car may impact it. You may want to talk to a local code enforcement person for the exact specs. I've attached a link to a Blog a Seattle Inspector wrote on the subject, including some pictures. I hope this helps. ... more

It depends on the HOA. Some will cover maintenance of the house and yard. Some will cover just the community area.

Tim Moore answered:
I posted the same question last month. I used it for 2 years, about a year ago, and was very disappointed with the results. When I posted the question here about it I got some disappointing answers so I'll be curious to see what you find. It really makes me mad that Realtor.com prices their service on the number of listings you have. I get a lot of listings but that does not mean all will sell, but Realtor.com does not care about that at all, only the number listed. One agent in the office paid $600 because she had many listings, 2 years ago, but only 2 sold making the Realtor.com service very very expensive with little return to show for it. My suggestion is to say NO to them when they call, and they will call and call and call you. ... more
