The Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Everyone wants to stay cool. One easy way is to have your own pool that you can use whenever the thermometer gets into the 80s and above. If you're in the market to swim at home and you don't have a lot of cash floating around, we're here to help.

We drew a circle around the Greater Utica-Rome consolidated metro area, plugged in the key word "pool," and came up with our definitive list of The Least Expensive Homes With In-Ground Pools Available in the Mohawk Valley.

We came up with a total of five single-family homes that fit the criteria and list for under $125,000. Here they are:
