There are three groups when it comes to homes with swimming pools: those that absolutely want a pool, those firmly against and a small group that are interested in having a pool but are put off by the cost and maintenance required. It wasn’t too long ago that I recommended to a homeowner to fill in their pool because there was more resale value by not having a pool than by having one that was older and less desirable.
Well, thanks to Covid, having a house with a pool has become a lot more desirable. Sure, there are people who are still firmly against having one but, as we are spending more time at home, having a your own pool is an attractive option for exercise and entertainment. Like before, some of the same rules apply. Home buyers are still wanting a pool that is well-kept, preferring salt over chlorine and the hard scape around the pool is as important as the pool itself.
New pools are in such demand at the moment that local installers are busy through next Spring, which may give a slight edge to property owners with pools already installed and ready to enjoy.
Here are the current homes available for sale in the Charlotte area with Swimming Pools
