Are Seasonal Discounts Real?
Why buying a pool after the summer is a wise choice.
When it’s 100 degrees in the middle of the summer, pool buyers are truly a motivated bunch of folks. An endless list of phone calls to pool companies seeking information, another stream of pool sales guys sitting at your kitchen table, hours of driving from showroom to showroom researching prices while the sun beats down on your head. But wait! Savvy pool buyers wait until after summer is over to buy their pools.
The truth be told…. Most pool contractors do experience a decline in demand once the summer boom is over. Of course the amount of decline tends to vary on where you are located. The Southwest, like Texas, does not experience the kind of decline as in the Northeast and Midwest. Prepared pool shoppers are ready to take advantage of the pool industries’ off season. How about an American Fiberglass Pool as a family holiday gift. Can you really provide anything better, more fun, more relaxing, more memory making than an American Fiberglass Pool?
The installation can be faster…. Why so? The construction workers are less rushed and better equipped to perform a quicker installation. As opposed to a summertime installation at peak demand, customers have to wait weeks just to get the pool started and as my dad used to say, burning daylight. During the off season pool buyers will have increased access to knowledgeable pool installation personnel who can complete their pool in a timelier manner, if the weather allows.
Cost of construction goes down…. Prices on tools, concrete, sand and other necessary supplies go down as demand decreases following the hectic summer months. Most pool guys and gals can obtain construction materials at better prices, which in turn allow them the ability to offer better prices to potential pool buyers. Typically, in January of every year the cost of goods go up. So that true window of savings is October – January.
Landscaping takes hold better…. The fall is the perfect time to plant grass and put decorative plants into beds. Let us face it, pool construction can create the need for yard repair, and of course the need of landscaping of the backyard to complete the backyard oasis you have always wanted. Most plants need 4-6 months to settle in and start growing so it’s better to get started on that sooner rather than later and so that your plants are vibrant looking when those swim parties and BBQ’s begin.
