Homes with pools sell at a premium

Source: Homelight

Prior to the pandemic, many buyers shunned properties with pools, which present maintenance issues and potential liability. Only 2 percent of REALTORS® in 2018 said that a pool helped to sell a home, according to data that year. But since the pandemic began, Americans have reevaluated their liking for pools, and homes with pools have become highly sought after, according to HomeLight. Pool additions are soaring, and more house hunters say they want one in their backyard.

Demand for pools is expected to continue being strong this spring and summer, and properties with an in-ground pool are selling for a premium, too. Real estate professionals surveyed by HomeLight estimate that prior to COVID-19, a house with a pool would net about $16,137 more than a similar house without one. But today, a house with a pool would sell for an estimated average of $27,199 more, industry experts say.
