Who needs crowded recreation center pools when you can buy a house with one in your backyard for a great price right now in south metro Denver. There is nothing like a dip in a cool pool on a hot summer day!  Pools at community centers are packed this time of year with kids & families going for the entertainment or for swim team or lessons. There is something about the water that draws many of us.  But you know the routine of packing everyone up and making sure you have all the towels and toys and sunscreen can make you exhausted before you even dip your toe in the water. Wouldn’t it be great to just walk into the backyard and enjoy a swim without all of that hassle?  Right now there are a number of great homes for sale in Denver and the southern suburbs with swimming pools.
