Do swimming pools increase home values?

With temperatures set to approach summer highs, you’re thinking that a swimming pool could be the answer to staving off a household mutiny. Swimming pools are nice to enjoy but can be a hassle to own. Homebuyers often view swimming pools as expensive to maintain and sometimes dangerous. In-ground pools can cost anywhere from $30,000 to more than $100,000—that's a significant amount of money to try to recoup when a house is sold. Put one in for your pleasure, but know that it’s unlikely to add significant value to your home and might even make it harder to sell. Here’s a list of home improvements that are sure to add value to your home.

Janet Blake knew our needs before we even did! She spent numerous hours dedicating herself to our home needs. I don't even remember how many houses we dragged her through! She was patient, professional, and always available to assist us through every step of the home buying process. We wouldn't think of using any one else.

Janet Blake sold my home. I could not have asked for a kinder person or a person that worked harder or a person that cared more for my circumstance and kept that thought in everything she accomplished. Had I not left the State of NC I would use her again. Aside from her endearing qualities in truly caring about her clients, I got a signed contract in less than a week. Choose Janet Blake when you need an Agent.

I knew Janet Blake personally and I knew her character and integrity were exemplary. When I decided to sell my home, she was my first choice as a broker. I will be recommending Janet Blake to anyone that I know is either selling or buying a home. She is great to work with and puts 110% into her work. She is very dedicated. My house was priced right compared to the comps and there was a lot of interest from the beginning. I had renters that Janet dealt with professionally and with grace. I appreciate all her attention and quick responses to my many questions. The sale of my home went smoothly and I am very grateful to Janet for making it an easy process.

I was completely happy with Janet Blake as my agent and will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know who is house hunting. She learned quickly what features were important to me in a house and she carefully selected properties to view. She remained available throughout the process and promptly responded to any and all questions. Her familiarity with the area and different neighborhoods was enormously helpful and her knowledge of inspectors, electricians, painters, contractors, lenders, attorneys, etc. is vast. From the start, I felt that Janet was truly committed to helping me find the right house, and I did find it.

Janet found this property for me to renovate and resell. She then assisted in renovation advice with suggestions to make the property more valuable for resale. After the renovation, Janet suggested an asking price which I thought might be high, but after two days on the market, I received multiple offers, with three over the listed price. The property closed on time with no issues. Extremely happy with Janet's performance. It exceeded my expectations.

After my wife and I decided to sell our home, we knew we needed an agent. My wife is related to Janet, so we went with her to help sell our home. I am glad we did; less than a day went by after our house was listed that we had an offer to purchase that we accepted - I had no idea it would sell that fast! The home selling process was fast but intense. If you've never done it before, home selling is a very fluid process. There's a lot of back-and-forth and changes that can happen based on how different things like offers and appraisals play out. Janet did an excellent job at helping my wife and I navigate through the process and being there when we needed someone to talk to. At all times I felt like she was professional and courteous. I would recommend her as well as use her again.

Janet Blake did a wonderful job helping us find the perfect home for our family. Her knowledge of the area helped us focus our search. Janet knew the listings available; however, it was her knowledge of potential listings and her connections with other agents that allowed us to be some of the first to view new listings. We gave an offer on a house that had exactly what we needed and was under budget. Our offer was accepted the same day. We are grateful for all of her hard work, and willingness to make us a priority.
