When selling your home, during the summer months, if you have a swimming pool, make the most of this area. During hot summer months, potential buyers are sure to be drawn in by a beautiful and refreshing swimming pool area. Make sure the pool is sparkling clean.  Keep the pool area clean and picked up. Put away pool toys and pick up used towels. Add pots of colorful flowers to the patio area and bright colored outdoor pillows to outdoor furniture. Potential buyers will be able to see themselves cooling off here.
