Installing a pool onto your property is a big step. Of course, most of us consider this for our own benefit and enjoyment. We consider installing a pool for summer days of fun and exercise. But, at the back of our minds, we are going to be wondering whether or not it will add any value to our homes.
Most commonly, adding a pool to the exterior of your home, whether it be an indoor or outdoor pool, will increase your property’s value by around 7%. Of course, this is going to depend upon the size of the pool, and any additional benefits it may bring, such as a hot tub included. It will also depend upon how well cared for it is. If the pool is run down and not looked after and needs work done to it, the value won’t of gone up by as much as these costs will be taken into consideration.
