You're an agent and you are asking us? Each market is different and it is hard for us to know your market. I know places where an above ground pool is looked at as almost offering no extra value. I suggest you contact an appraiser in your area and ask them. A lot will depend on the lot size and how the pool interacts with the house and the homes near by. ... more
