Clearwater Real Estate ~ Pool Homes
Many people moving to Clearwater and the Tampa Bay area are looking to enjoy our "Florida Lifestyle" - while many people enjoy living on Clearwater Beach quite a few chose other top Clearwater neighborhoods because of commutes to work, neighborhood ammenities or schools. Having a pool and a screened cage can often bring the outside in making a home feel much larger while providing a great recreational space and a desirable place to entertain.
Currently many homebuyers find it's cheaper to buy a Clearwater home that already has a pool than to put one in so demand for pool homes helps these homes stay in demand. By the same token a poorly maintained pool home can become hard to sell and expensive to repair so working with real estate professionals that understand the ins and outs of pool homes can keep you from making costly pool home mistakes.
Also remember, if you have kids - Pool Safety is something you need to plan for. And for children that need to learn how to swim in Clearwater has lots of options from private Lessons with a caring swim instructor where your kids can be swimming after a few lessons or the local YMCA and the neighborhood recreation centers offer courses year round.

Mollie Brauer of Making Waves Swim School offers families in Pinellas County private swim lessons or group lessons. She came highly recommended and now we know why. She took our 6 year old who wouldn't put his eyes in the water and who had major swimming phobias and had him swimming the whole length of the pool after (6) 30 minute private swim lessons. That's her in the photo above. We highly recommend her if you're looking for a patient, caring, great certified swim instructor for this area. You can contact her at 727-510-7066 and tell her Cyndee Haydon sent you.

So here's more about what Clearwater Pool Homes are doing in today's real estate market...
