A lot weight should be placed on who the buyer is likely to be. An owner occupant buyer would place some value on the pool in its' current condition. If you see that investors are buying homes in your area, and you suspect an investor will be buying your home to use as a rental property, they most likely would elect to tear out the pool. I would not spend money to demolish the pool, however. An investor would have his own people and could get this work done very efficiently. I hope this helps!

Hi Ann Marie,

Pools are always tough! They really are a case by case basis. How bad is the pool? Does it have a liner, is it gunite, etc? I live in and work the Fayetteville market all the time. If you'd like, I'd be happy to stop by and take a look and see if I can make a determination about the best thing to do based on your home, the value of your home, and the pool. Pools can be a real detriment to selling, especially when it comes to financing. I can help you determine the best way to handle it. Feel free to call me or email me. Good luck no matter what you do!

My advice is to the a bid from a pool company to bring the pool up to standards and a bid to abandon the pool. The choose the route that works best for you.

That is the problem. The costs are almost the same so it is hard to tell which route to go considering the number of foreclosure in Georgia and what it has done to the prices of homes.
