Does a Pool Increase or Decrease Your Home’s Value

4D Realty


Like any other unique home feature, swimming pools can either thrill homeowners or leave them cold, making their real value up to the buyer.

On the plus side, swimming pools are part of the overall outdoor decorating trend that has given new emphasis to backyard landscaping, fencing, walkways, decks, weather-proof kitchens, fireplaces, patios, ponds, and more. This trend makes it easier to show off a pool as a true asset to the home.

Consider the following factors:

1. You live in a higher-end neighborhood where most of your neighbors have pools.

2. You live in a warmer climate like Texas where you can enjoy a pool most of the year.

3. The pool doesn’t take up your entire yard—there’s still room for a swing set and a garden.

4. The style of the pool fits with your home and neighborhood, and it’s well maintained.

5. You can attract a buyer who wants a pool in their new home.

A move-in ready home with a swim-ready pool can be very attractive to the right buyer, so the more you can stage the pool, the better.
