How Much Value Does A Pool Add To A House?

Have you been considering installing a pool in your backyard, but you’re not sure if it’s the right move for your home? Are you looking for ways that you can increase your home’s value, while also adding features that your family will be able to use for years to come? If this has led you to the question of how much value does a pool add to a house, you’re not alone. Take a look here at how different types of pools can impact your home value and which are the best investments.


Do all pools add value to a home?

There’s no doubt that Australians love their swimming pools. In a country that experiences such fierce summers and often mild weather for the rest of the year, pools can arguably see a lot of use. They’re the perfect way to keep cool, especially if you don’t live near a beach. While pools are popular home additions, it’s natural to wonder if all pools will add value to your house. Unfortunately, the answer is that no, not every single pool is going to add value to your home. The good news, however, is that some pool types will. So, what’s the difference?


What pools can help increase your home’s value?

If you want to invest in a swimming pool that is not only fun to use but adds value to your home, these are our top suggestions on which to choose:

  • In-ground concrete swimming pools: An in-ground swimming pool is going to add value to your home, as opposed to an above-ground swimming pool. In-ground pools are far superior aesthetically, they are sturdier and they’re easier to clean. If you’re planning on investing in a pool, always opt for an in-ground pool if you are worried about home value.
  • Pools that are landscaped in: Pools that have been integrated with your backyard landscaping are going to add value to your home. This is because thought has clearly gone into the pool and it often looks immaculately presented. Landscaped pools can include beautiful gardens, patio areas or fenced off areas that separate your yard and pool space thoughtfully and stylishly.
  • Lap pools: Lap pools are becoming increasingly popular with Aussie locals because they are easy to maintain, great to relax in or swim laps in and they don’t take up a huge amount of space like a traditional pool would. Lap pools come in a range of different depths, shapes and sizes which means that they can be customised to almost any backyard or garden space. Many potential home buyers see lap pools as fantastic additions to homes.


Your neighbourhood matters

What a lot of people don’t realise when they are thinking about investing in a pool and are wondering if it will increase their home value is that your neighbourhood itself is going to have a huge impact. Believe it or not, people who live near the beach also enjoy having a pool in their backyard. With this in mind, investing in a pool in the right neighbourhood can potentially increase your home’s value.

If you live in a community where swimming or owning a pool isn’t considered an attractive or essential feature, building a pool will unlikely have the same effect. Some people don’t want to deal with the hassle that comes with maintaining a pool either, so if you put your home on the market, bear in mind that some buyers won’t be interested in your property.
