Yes, pools are a great way to add value to your home and provide a source of entertainment for you and your family. The extent of the increase in your home value will depend on the type of inground pool you choose to build and how you choose to design and build it.
Real estate experts estimate that an average 14x28-foot inground concrete pool can add 5 to 8 percent to the real estate value of your home. There are several other factors that can impact the value of a pool. A well-maintained, nicely designed pool with amenities like adjacent decks, patios, and shade structures can add more value to your property. On the other hand, a poorly maintained or unattractive pool shoehorned into a small yard can reduce the value of your home.
If you're selling a house with a pool, it is crucial to ensure that it is well-maintained, nicely designed, and has amenities that add value to the property. Homebuyers typically prefer pools that are in good condition and require minimal repairs or upgrades and will avoid pools that are outdated and require additional expense.
Living in a neighborhood with plenty of attractive in-ground pools could make your property less desirable to potential buyers without a luxury pool in your backyard. To maximize the resale value of your home, consider a custom-built inground pool with features that suit the size and shape of your backyard.
Additionally, landscaping around a pool plays a crucial role in adding value to your home. Thoughtfully designed and well-maintained landscaping can increase your home's value by up to 25%. Therefore, it is important to consider the landscape with your custom pool design. Including decks, patios, and shade structures will turn your backyard into a luxury resort-style oasis.
