Understanding that the majority of our customers finance their pool in one way, shape, or form, we at River Pools and Spas want to help you understand the task of pool financing and how it typically works for most homeowners.
Pool customers pay for their swimming pools in a variety of manners. Some of the routes typically taken are:
- Home Equity Line
- Second Mortgage
- Unsecured Loan
- Out of Pocket (cash)
- Credit Card
***Pool Financing Tip: If you are planning to finance a large portion of your project, be sure to get pre-approval before having companies out for estimates. Many times folks have their dream pool all lined up only to find out they cannot secure the necessary financing. You can check out our pool pricing guide to determine your budget range.
Home Equity Lines & Second Mortgages
Of all listed, the most popular methods are second mortgages and equity lines which allow home owners to borrow against the equity in their homes. These are relatively easy to secure and have competitive rates.
For those persons who a 2nd mortgage or home-equity line is not an option, there is still hope. Unsecured loans do not require home equity, but you will need solid credit.
If this seems like an option for you, we would suggest contacting Lightstream, a Division of Suntrust that specializes in swimming pool loans. There is also AMS Financial, who works with at least five lending agencies who specialize in pool loans.
