Does a Pool Add Value to a Home

Does a Pool Add Value to a Home
Does a pool add value to a home? The answer to this question has recently changed quite a bit. What I used to tell clients is “no, not unless the next buyer wants a pool”. However, in the last couple months I have watched a very unique market. Homes with pools are going quickly and often with multiple offers. This is very different from years prior, and maybe it’s a temporary change. My guess is with the current times people are looking for homes with opportunities they didn’t have in a previous home.

Social Changes = Change in Desire

Many camps and clubs and beaches are still closed and fear still lingers around many residents for their health and safety. COVID-19 and the stay at home order has drastically changed the desires of many buyers out there right now. Pools are a perk! So if you are a potential seller with a pool, this may be your time to capitalize on the market.
