Is This Lawton’s Nicest Backyard Pool?

Growing up, I don't think there was a single house I can remember living in that didn't have a swimming pool. Some of my earliest memories are of my moms pools, like the time I got a few paddle swats from the school principal for skipping school at lunch only to be found swimming in our backyard. I was six, it was first grade, and the pro-wrestler sized principal wept.

My father, on the other hand, does not.

This Lawton Home Is Only $16 Per Month

When it comes to owning a home, the process is usually the same. As the buyer, you go into the process looking to spend as little as possible to fill your needs, the lender lets you know what your maximum price cap is, and the realtor usually only shows you homes in that maximum price range.
