Navigating the pools field can sometimes feel like a sink-or-swim situation, but understanding all of the pool field options can help you make a splash with your clients instead of ending up all wet.


The Pool option in the General Property Description field should be your go-to choice when setting up pool parameters.



Once selected, you’ll see the familiar four options- Both Private & Community, Community Only, Private Only and None. If your client just wants the ability to swim, selecting Community Only and Private Only will bring up houses that either have a private pool on the property or have access to a pool shared by the community. When you select Both Private & Community only listings that have both will appear.




The default Pool-Private field helps you search for specific features your Client wants in their private pool, such as heated or diving pools. Selecting Pool-Private without selecting Pool from the General Property Description fields can throw off your search and produce inaccurate results.
