Home buyers that see a pool as just a nice additive, but a headache will not pay more for a house with a pool. It is hit or miss with no definate answer.
The pool should be looked at for your enjoyment, not as an investment item.
I agree with what many of the previous posters. You also have to consider the age of the pool, the conditon of the linter, if it has a heating system. etc. Most people wiill put a 24K value on a new, unusued pool, but that is rarely the case.
Id also have toi ask is it above goiund or in ground.
As the previous p;osters stated, the value of a pool depend upon the buyer's needs and wants. While one buyer may see it as a plus, another seees it as a minus, expecaiily those with children under the age of 5 as it cosnidered a rsik rather than a benefit.
Frankly, depending pon the neighbohood and the likekind properties, the value of a pool may vary and without seeing your property is is hard to access. I have Hoiwell buyer who bould die for a pool and other that have noi desire.

Unfortunately a pool does not add value. It only adds value to those that really want a pool. It can be more of a liability. Most appraisers will maybe give $5000 to value of a pool.
Have a great day :)
