Are you thinking about buying a spa?

We don’t blame you! A hot tub spa can be an invaluable asset to your lifestyle. Spending regular time in a Sundance® Spa can result in many health improvements, reduced stress, and even improved sleep patterns. Not to mention the investment in your backyard, as a hot tub can provide you with the opportunity to completely transform your backyard into your own outdoor oasis. If you’re considering investing in a spa, here are five things to review before you get started!

1. Budget

Avoid unexpected financial surprises by creating a budget. This will help you to determine what a comfortable dollar amount is for you to spend on a new spa system. Not only does having a budget set you at ease, but it can also be helpful for the sales associate when it’s time to buy. You can have a better idea of which hot tubs are in your determined price range. You can move forward with confidence knowing you can truly afford the investment you’re making, so later on you won’t have buyer’s remorse.

While planning your budget, you should keep in mind that cheaper isn’t always better. Sometimes you get the quality that you pay for. With such a significant investment, adding a little more buffer to your budget may provide you with the long-lasting quality and reliability that you’re seeking. Remember to add room in your budget for hot tub accessories, monthly operational costs, and building your backyard hot tub installation.
