Today's Craze for Luxury Homes with Pools

Today's Craze for Luxury Homes with Pools

I have to admit, I’ve seen witnessed some pretty wacky things in my 25 years of selling real estate, but this 2021 Covid pool craze may top the list! Nonetheless, the topic of today’s blog is less about Covid and more about how Covid has forced many homeowners to reconsider the value of their outdoor spaces at home. As the demand for pools surges for the second year amid canceled vacations and long days at home, homeowners have became desperate for pools, and I don’t mean just in-ground pools, I mean any kind of pool will do (that's a different story worth telling sometime).

I have fielded a multitude of calls from clients recently, seeking my professional advice on how a pool would affect their home value. As you might suspect, my response is always “If your heart is set on adding a pool, don’t look at it as an investment in your home, but in your lifestyle. A pool can add to your family’s enjoyment of your home, and you can’t put a price on that. As for resale, the demand for a pool is much higher today than it ever has been, so rest assured that when you are ready to sell, there will likely be more buyers searching for homes with pools than ever before...just prepare yourself for the 2-3 year wait list at the reputable pool companies!”

I really thought I had heard of it all, until I opened the The New York Times on the morning of August 6th to find an article titled “How About Renting My Pool For an Hour or Two?” Excuse me? Did I read that right? You must read for yourself....
