Realtor Talk: The Value a Swimming Pools Brings to a Home

There’s no denying that buying and installing a swimming pool is an expense, but it’s also an investment that provides value. According to the National Association of Realtors, a swimming pool can increase the value of your home by five to seven percent! This percentage can be even greater with these considerations:

1. A home that’s already attractive can be made more attractive with a pool.

According to Home Guides, a swimming pool can improve resale value when a desirable home has a beautiful swimming pool.

2. Higher-priced, high-end homes have better resale value with a pool.

Home Guides also notes that the higher the price of the home, the more likely is the homeowner will recoup the acquisition costs of a pool.

3. Homes in subdivisions where other homes have pools will be more desirable and have better resale value.

If the other homes in your neighborhood have pools, it’s important to have a swimming pool. When it comes time to sell your home, it will perform well against other homes that may be for sale with pools.

4. Pools are a must-have for homes in warm-weather locations.

If you live in an area of the country where it’s warm most of the year or gets very hot in the summer, it’s important to for your home to have a pool so it’s not overlooked when it’s time to sell. Areas like Florida, Southern California, Texas and the southern parts of the U.S. or the coast will benefit from a pool.

Realtor Mag, the official magazine of the National Association of Realtors, also reports that the type of pool matters and can impact your home value. These types of pools will bring the most value:

  • In-ground: An in-ground pool will increase your home value much more than an above-ground pool.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: A pool that has style and is beautifully designed is preferable.
  • Good condition: The pool must be well-maintained without mechanical problems.
