Having a pool can be a two edged sword. There are the obvious benefits of having one, the image of kids playing in it, you taking a dip on that way too hot day. But to many of the buyers I work with, I would say 3 out of 4, they won’t look at a home with a pool.
Thus this article in REALTOR®Mag by Barbara Ballinger, Clarifying Home Pool Choices, made for an interesting read. She gives a multi-point presentation of reasons to have a pool and some useful suggestions as to its placement, size etc. The most obvious one she says is climate:
It may seem obvious, but pools get greater use in warmer climates. Not surprisingly, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals reported that the top four states for in-ground pools last year were California, Florida, Texas, and Arizona.
She also had two graphs from the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals that I found interesting and hopefully you will too.
