An inground pool definitely increases home value, in more ways than one. First, there’s the added enjoyment you and your family will get out of your outdoor living space.
Think of all of the possibilities:
- Birthday pool parties
- Poolside graduation parties
- Focal point for outdoor entertaining
- Easy exercise right outside your patio door
- Great place to get a tan
- Every day’s a pool day
And if you ever have to do a summer staycation again instead of traveling, that pool will be worth its weight in gold.
How a Custom Concrete Inground Pool Affects Home Value
We’re going to talk today about how a concrete inground pool increases home value because that’s what we specialize in. If your home is one of the few homes in your neighborhood without a pool, that could actually be a negative when it comes time to sell your home. You might not get top dollar.
Homebuyers who want to live in your neighborhood may want to be there because the school district is desirable, because of the size of the properties, the quality of construction, and yes, because everyone has a pool. But you shouldn’t install an inground pool if you’re not going to use it and enjoy it.
Still, if you’re thinking about having a concrete pool installed, chances are you aren’t planning on moving any time soon. You want to create your own backyard paradise, a luxury you’ve worked hard for. You’ve done the research, and determined that a concrete pool is the way to go. No cookie-cutter pool for you!
You probably already know that you will not see a full return on your investment when you install an inground pool. But that’s not why you’re doing it. You know that the ROI is not all about the money. But if you’re curious, HouseLogic estimates installing an inground pool (a good one) will increase your home’s resale value by about 7%. Certainly nothing to sniff at.
When you do decide to sell your home, make sure you do it in the summertime so potential buyers can see the fun in the sun they could have if they bought your home.
