A buyer client recently asked me if a swimming pool was a positive or negative when trying to sell a home. I told him that it depended on who was buying the home. Younger people with children would feel that a swimming pool was a positive while empty nesters might consider a swimming pool a negative. People with very young children definitely consider a swimming pool a safety risk, but there are ways to deal with this such as "fencing" around the pool, alarms, etc. Also, experience has taught me that it is beneficial not to have a lot of trees around the pool that shed leaves in the winter. Other things to consider are maintenance costs such as electricity, chemicals and/or possibly having someone maintain the pool for you. One thing for sure is that a swimming pool is "forever" and you must maintain it yourself or have someone maintain it or it becomes a definite "negative". A swimming pool can be removed but this is very expensive. There are a lot of positives to owning a swimming pool which include years of fun with family and friends.
