Pools and hot tubs boost home list prices in some markets: Trulia

If you live in a state with an “endless summer” and you own a pool, you’re in luck, according to recent data from Trulia.

Markets where home pools boost the list price

As you might expect, Trulia found Florida had the most home pools, followed by Arizona and California. Trulia also found that having a pool in these markets boosts the home list price.

In Florida, a pool can add as much as 19 percent to a home’s list price. In California, the price impact is about 8 percent. The price impact in Arizona was the lowest at 5 percent, but Trulia says this is likely because buyers and sellers in Arizona assume a pool is a given. Arizona boasts the highest number of pools per single-family homes in the United States.
