That's an impossible question, as the answer is, "It depends." You then asked, "It depends on WHAT?" My response was is that the almost infinitesimal number of reasons is so long, I would probably die before I finished it. Best advice?? Seek out the services and assistance of a strong, experienced, patient and professional real estate agent. Tell him/her that you want to hire her/him as your exclusive Buyer's Agent. You'll most likely find out fairly quickly how valuable your Buyer's Agent can be.

All the best!

If unfamiliar with the area, do visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors; also contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Spirit Messingham answered:
Good question, and really I use same rule of thumb as apprasiers do, if you can use other "true" comps without factoring in the pool, do so. If not, depending on the pool and please understand it can be a huge difference between a plastic stand up pool and an in ground, salt water deep black pearl "infinity" pool. In general, $10K for standard size plaster or low end pebble tec up to $20K for larger with water features.

Are you using a an agent or Realtor? They can help big time with all these. As a home owner with a pool, the cost is so much more than people realize. Add at least $50 a month in summer for electric use on the pool pump, if you pay someone else for chemicals, $50 a month but you still need to clean it yourself or that is more. Plus chemicals and etc, in other words I would much, much rather have a community pool and pay a HOA. Course, everyone is different but that is my opinion on it.

Best of luck.

The Queen Creek/San Tan Valley market has been showing strength with many of the correctly priced homes selling very fast, often with multiple offers. The rate of foreclosures has begun to fall off and inventory of homes is dropping, a combination that typically indicates an improving market.

The area is also likely to do very well long term with the growth around the airport and the freeway extension in the coming years.
