)-- PcPools, one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground swimming pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners announces continued growth in sales of above ground and in ground swimming pool s for Spring 2009. According to the National Association of Realtors, refinancing applications are up over 30% nationwide as homeowners take advantage of historically low interest rates. With the recent rise in refinancing, this is the perfect time to invest in an in ground or above ground swimming pool. As families continue to prioritize their spending, owning a quality in ground or above ground pool has become increasingly the family choice.
Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say, “Recent refinancing trends have homeowners looking to make high quality investments in their homes. Many of these homeowners like the idea of investing in a quality of life product such as an in ground or above ground swimming pool. Such an investment is consistent with the trend towards stay-at- home vacations, or “stay-cations” which are becoming more and more popular with families. Fortunately for PcPools, we stand a lot to gain from the “take a vacation at home” angle. Demand is clearly on the upswing in the in ground and above ground swimming pool market. With the potential lower monthly payments and the increase in in-pocket income that can come with refinancing, more families are bringing the vacation to their backyard with an in ground or above ground swimming pool. We continue to see the trend of families spending dollars, historically used for vacations, now being spent on improving their homes. With a swimming pool, families are realizing that is a cost effective way of improving quality time with their family for the same of less than a week long vacation for a family of four. Save on travel expenses, gas, dining out, hotels and you know where your kids are during the summer. The swimming pool ends up being a great trade off. Once the swimming pool is purchased, the family can enjoy a “stay-cation” for many years to come.” Robinson expects the trend to continue for many years to come.
