I'm purchasing a house in Chesapeake and it has an above ground pool. I plan on getting rid of it b/c I don't want to deal with the maintenance. Anyone have any idea where I could possibly sale it? Is there a website, paper or business that would be good for this? Thanks.

Joe

You could always put it in your buyer agreement to have the current owners remove it.... We bought a house in Va Beach.. and the owners said they would remove it as part of the deal.. BUT thankfully we kept it... It has been great this summer.. and very easy to care for...

Kijiji is ebay's comeback to killing Craigslist as Craigslist hurts ebay.

Yea above ground pools, yech. When I get around to buying a house, I expect inground pool and prior owner to take the loss on it.

Thanks for the links! I tried including it in my contract, but the owner didn't want anything to do with it. So I'm stuck with it.

I'm thinking about selling it for $1000, which would include the pool, pump, accessories and even the wooden deck platform/ladder that was built for it. We'll see. I don't close until the end of August, so I've got sometime.

Once again. Thanks.

Joe

actually, above ground pools can be easily sold. Most people either can't afford an inground or have the room in their yard. It isn't a permanent fixture either!

That may be true but a friend of mine (retired) has a side job where he removes above ground pools for free, as he makes a little side money off of selling the scrap metal and pumps etc.....He is so busy he often has to turn work away as he only does one pool a day

Growing up my parents had one. I'd never get one. Inground all the way.
