Should You Invest in A Pool for Your Backyard?

June 24th, 2019

Now that summer has officially arrived in the Houston Texas area it's not uncommon for many homeowners to start thinking about how they can stay cool during the summer months.

In the Houston area, you can easily drive down to Galveston in about one hour, visit one of the public swimming pools in the area, or consider investing in a swimming pool for your own backyard.

If you have been thinking about investing in a swimming pool for your backyard, this article will provide you with everything that you need to know about building a swimming pool so that you can have confidence with your decision to make this investment in your property.

How Much Does A Swimming Pool Cost?

Depending on the contractor, a typical swimming pool can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $65,000. And that's just a starting point for the investment because you also have to consider the additional costs including landscaping, and ongoing maintenance.

The good news about building a swimming pool on your property is that if you're one hundred percent committed to making this investment, it only takes about 10 weeks to build from start to finish so if you start your pool in July, you can expect to have it finished no later than mid-September.

Will A Swimming Pool Add Value to Your Home?

Now that I’ve covered the cost but you can expect to pay when you invest in a swimming pool for your home, I will also talk about if a swimming pool will also help to add value to your home as well.

The answer to this question is yes, you can expect a pool to add at least 7% to the value of your home.

Having a pool is highly desirable especially in the Houston area because everyone knows the heat that they can expect to endure during the summer months here and having a way to cool off on their own property makes a swimming pool an awesome addition to any property.
