So you made a SPLASH!
So you made a SPLASH and put in the pool of your dreams last year, but now you're thinking about selling. Does your pool add value to your home?
Of course this varies across the states, but in Louisiana’s hot weather, pools are a welcoming amenity.
Let's dive in...
You know how they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Well, when it comes to pools, their value is in the eye of the beholder.
For some it's a must and they would be willing to pay more for a home that has a pool than a similar home that does not.
For others, they see it as nothing more than a whole in the ground filled with water they have to pay to maintain.
It's not always a matter of whether or not a pool is valuable. It's more about whether or not a buyer finds a pool desirable.
If you're considering putting a pool in your current home but you know you're probably going to sell in a few years, don't do it because you think it is a good investment and will add value (because it doesn't always!)
If you're going to put a pool in, do it because you love it and want to enjoy it and make memories out there with the people you love.
