Summer is over and fall is here. Pool season has ended… for most of the world. For smart people in Southern states however, it’s just beginning. It’s still hot in North Carolina, and there are several reasons why it’s the perfect time to buy a swimming pool.
Prices Fall in Autumn
According to PoolPricer, the best time of year to buy a pool is fall. According to Angie’s List, the best time of year to buy a pool is fall. According to the Freehold Patch, the best time to buy a pool is … you guessed it — fall.
For pool builders, business drops off dramatically after Labor Day — and prices drop off right along with it. With peak pool season behind us, not only do prices plummet, but service improves. Pool builders have far fewer jobs, far fewer bids and far less on their plate — they can put their focus completely on you.
An After-School Distraction
Now, let’s talk about your kids. You generally like them. But let’s be honest, you like them better when they’re outside. In states like North Carolina, a pool can double as a babysitter well into the fall. Kids need supervision when they’re in the swimming pool, but compared to having those spastic little …
… angels. Compared to having those precious, adorable angels in your living room, I’m pretty sure you’ll take the pool any day that the sun is in the sky.
Next Summer is Almost Here … Be Ready
There are fewer than 250 days until next swimming pool season. When it arrives, which it will before you know it, you’ll be ready. Your genius neighbors who all asked “who buys a pool in the fall?!?!” will be on a waiting list for super expensive pools for peak season in the summer. You, on the other hand, will be splashing around and thinking about how to spend all the money you saved by being smart and buying in the fall.
