    Thread: Houses with pools

      But looking on realestate.com.au it doesn't seem that there are many that come with them. There are lots of lovely large houses in our prospective price range (looking at 350- 600 a week)

      Is it that there aren't many houses with pools? Are they just out of our price range? I noticed also that the listings don't make a big deal of them if they do have them. Guess they are just a bit more of the "norm" over there????
      We were looking at renting our house out that has a pool but have now thought against. We were told by a couple of agents that renting a house out with a pool is more hassle than it is worth as the tenants tend not to keep up with the maintenance of it and it could be a costly excerise if anything went wrong!! That could be why a alot of houses with pools are not up for rent. We are choosing to sell instead.

      Our pool is actually quite easy to look after as it is indoors therefore it needs vacumming probably once/twice year and a tub of chlorine for $50 will last 3 months....its a god send on those really hot days and nice to come home after a days work for a dip and a cool down.

      Good luck in finding the right house for you...looks like you have got a very good budget and I am sure you will find a lovely house in that price range.:)

      Exactly right!
      We rented out our Christies Beach house (unfurnished) for a year before we renovated it. What a nightmare! My OH was there every week...every time it rained...every time the wind blew!!! The tennants didn't take any notice regarding pool chemicals and the pool cleaner.
      Having said that....we have now invested in a large filter and as long as the pool cleaner is connected and the water level is topped up things are fine. It does cost quite a lot with chemicals and electricity but for the Summer months it is certainly worth it.
