Default Installing inground pool cost guestimates in Summerlin

I'm searching for a home in the Vistas, here in Summerlin. I may have to buy a house without a pool in order to stay within my price point. I realize there are many variables involved including size and type etc. But, I'd like to get a rough estimate on what I might expect to spend to have it put in. Can anyone offer some answers to questions such as: (1) How does a buyer know if the lot is big enough to accomodate a pool (2) if the HOA will permit a pool, (3) are there known caliche veins in this area?
Any thoughts and opinions appreciated!

I am having a pool built now (they shot the gunite on Tuesday). 31' x 35' free-form with spa cost $34K. I have two H.O.A's that took 130 days to approve. Excavation costs were $3k higher as there was less than 4' access. If they hit caliche it can cost $200 +/- an hour extra. You may want to ask a neigbour if they had any issues.

Also if you have to finance a pool it could be a problem I know some pool companies don't offer any type of financing due to banks not wanting to lend.

And as far as how big of a yard you will need for a pool depends on what kind of pool you want a lap pool and spool ect. I have seen pools in 4500 sq/ft lots and up. You will love having a pool in the summer here I wouldn't live here without one. There are other folks that would beg to differ.

Contract was drawn up 10/04/10 with completion by 12/04/10. My local H.O.A. received plans on 10/08/10 and approved them 1/31/11. The master H.O.A then had to approve it so final approval was 02/16/11. The builder came out 2/19/11 and marked the back yard. Excavation started 2/23/11, then plumbing, equipment,electrical and steel. Inspection was carried out 3/11/11 and gunite was shot 3/15/11. Tile and coping may start next week possibly. I will try and post some construction pics.

WestcoastBrit, how are you loving your pool? Someday, when you have time, I'd love to see pics of the finished project. How much did you invest in landscaping (if any) your yard around the pool. Appreciate any input!

Financing: Doesn't a bank consider a pool "Liquid Assets"?
(or maybe just a bar)
