In most cases, the value of a home will drop if an in ground pool is removed, or filled in with dirt or cement.
If you purchased your home with a pool, the appraisal would include the current pool in its valuation..

For instance , if the pool requires $3000 to repair and bring up to par, then you would be about $2000.00 dollars to the value of the home ( A standard old pool is about 5K on an appraisal).
Buyers will pay more for a pool, especially in this climate,however, if the pool is in severe disrepair you are better off completing a demo ( Get the proper permit from the city and a soils engineer if required).
