Hi Brad, Back at the height of the market this perceived value was off the charts. Today with homes having gone through a market adjustment and buyers expecting more without paying for it, this value is at times difficult to quantify. As with most of real estate values truly boil down to what the property means to you as a buyer. The value for these types of ammenities is determined by other comparable properties both with and without the pool and/or view.
In order to protect me client's interest and expectations I only want them to offer what they feel comfortable with. If they absolutely love the home and can't live without the pool and view, submit an offer that represents this love. Therefore should you end up not getting the home you don't have any remorse because you knew you could have done more.
Happy to discuss this further with you. Cheers.
