Do Swimming Pools Increase Home Value?

in ground poolIn the Raleigh area, the answer is yes!

If you’re considering installing a pool, you probably have a lot of questions — not least among them being whether or not your new swimming pool will add value to your home. Linda Craft, a local Triangle REALTOR, addressed this issue on her blog “High Dive or Belly Flop? How Swimming Pools Affect Raleigh Home Values.”

On the blog, Linda’s realty team asserts:

“Closed properties with pools are bringing in 5% to 10% higher than those without pools. It is not 100% ROI but is it is clear that there is a more positive outlook on them than ever before.”

The blog also points out the importance of pool maintenance to ensure that your swimming pool adds lasting value to your home.
