Does a pool add value to your home? We will find out today!
With the temperatures expected to reach 92 or more today the house hunt for sure will turn steamy!
These folks don't have a strong preference either way, but I can't help wonder as I get ready to head out the door, will the couple of homes that have pools be more attractive to this family than those that don't?
I can honestly say with the many buyers that I have helped in their home search over the years that most seem to like the idea of having a pool. That flies in the face of all that we have believed over the past couple of decades. Is it that folks are "stay-cationing" more, or is it that, in our efforts to constantly upgrade the curb appeal of our homes, the pool becomes a beautiful accessory?
What I can say for sure is that, in several of my recent sales the buyers, in part, choose the property because the pool and the thoughts of out door entertaining was very appealing. The debate goes on and on. Some will say that a pool adds no value, others will say that it detracts from a property. My personal opinion is that it does add value if the pool is in good condition, safe, and has attractive fencing and apron.
