If you are considering adding a pool to your backyard this year, then you are likely wanting to know more about all of the benefits that it’s going to provide for you, your family, and your property. Needless to say, when it comes to you and your family, the #1 benefit that it’s going to provide is a place to cool off on a hot summer day – all from the comfort of your own home. But will a pool add value to your home?
When it comes to what benefits the above ground pool is going to add to your backyard and property, there are a few things to consider. First of all, how big is the pool going to be that you are getting installed? What will it be made out of? And finally, if you are thinking about moving within the next year or two, are you going to be leaving the pool on the property?
The answer to the last question is likely the most important thing to think about. If you aren’t going to leave the pool in the yard and you plan on taking it with you, then no, the pool is not going to increase the value of your home if you are thinking about selling it. However, if you are planning on leaving the pool on the property, then it may increase its resale value – it likely will not be as much as you paid for the pool, but it should be a considerable amount.
Selling Your Home With the Pool
If you are going to leave the pool on the property, it will be in your best interest to be sure that you are properly maintaining it throughout the year so that you can be getting the most for your investment.
Be sure that you have a cover installed to keep ice, snow, and bugs out. Also, be sure to maintain your pool’s liner and check it often for cracks, rips, and tears. It will be important for you to regularly replace these items and other pool accessories as needed.
