With summers getting scorching hotter and days becoming insanely longer, what’s the best way to beat the heat in Australia? Taking a dip of relief in your own swimming pool.

Swimming pools have been a part of the Australian lifestyle for decades. Down Under boasts the world’s highest per capita rate of pool ownership and has approximately 1.2 million household swimming pools.

As per Roy Morgan, Western Australia has the highest number of households with a swimming pool at 18%, but the real Queen of Oz swimming-pool heartland remains Queensland. Queensland pools take more than 17% of the state’s real estate, especially around regional Queensland.

But with the expense of housing rising in all major cities, Brisbane has become the star of Australia’s alfresco real estate industry.

As per QBE Australian Housing Outlook 2017-2020, Brisbane is rated at +20.6% while Sydney and Melbourne sit at -39.7% and -36.2% respectively.

But adding a few twitches to your property can make it more appealing to the prospective buyers and will make the process of selling a property in Queensland less difficult.
