Is Building A Pool Worth It?

I absolutely adore my pool. With that out of the way, have you ever wondered, “How will a pool affect my home’s appraisal value?” Some factors include:

  1. Pool design and cost
  2. Local area climate
  3. Pool to no-pool ratio

Please consider that in a moderate climate area in the US, a 14×28 swimming pool can add approximately 5-8% to a home’s appraised value. Spas about 5k.

Pools &Appraisals – 3 Things To Consider

While there are more factors, I want to stick to these primary issues.

  • Over Doing It

    Over my long career, I’ve witnessed multiple $100,000 – $120,000 swimming pools appraise for a mere $15-$30k over comparable sales to homes with basic in-ground pools.

  • The Climate

    A Nebraska pool home probably isn’t as desirable as a pool home in Summerlin, Some buyers back east will even fill-in pools.

  • The Subdivision

    The more homes a neighborhood has? The overall more valuable the neighborhood tends to become.

Seeking A-List Real Estate Representation In Sin City?

At the end of the day, it’s my opinion that if you’re going to design and build a pool, do it for yourself. When you go to resell, hopefully the pool will help your home stand out from the competition.
