Pool Removal Increases Property Value

Pool Removal Increases Property Value


Some real estate agents estimate you are eliminating almost 50 percent of your potential market when you are trying to sell your home with a pool. It is a smart investment to remove your pool especially in the following conditions:

  • If the pool is over 30 years old
  • If the pool takes up more than 30 percent of the backyard
  • If the pool has a vinyl liner
  • If your pool allows for less than three months of swimming time
  • If yours is the only pool in the neighborhood
  • If your area is experiencing a drought

Unless your geographic location allows for 6 or more solid months of swimming weather, your pool is less than 15 years old, and most of the neighborhood has a pool, you can expect your pool to decrease your property value.

Some of the exceptions to your pool decreasing your property value would be if your house is considered a luxury home, many of your neighbors have a pool, and the pool is completely enclosed, including a secure safety gate.

Many folks just don’t like the risks involved in owning a pool. Therefore trying to make your property more attractive to potential buyers, pool removal could be your best option.

Removing your pool also allows your property to have more outdoor green space. An uncluttered yard increases your property’s potential; thus increasing your property’s value.
