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.

Ken is a true professional in every sense of the word. I liked him from the beginning. He was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. As a widow moving more than 500 miles from home I needed someone who could walk me through the entire buying process. Ken is extremely knowledgeable not only about real estate but also about Lake Lure and the surrounding areas. He was informative and always patient with me. I was nervous about being so far away from the home I was buying but Ken put my mind at ease. He kept me informed, told me what the next steps were and helped me with inspections and all the things required during the due diligence period. I can't say enough good things about Ken. I strongly recommend him for any and all things real estate. I couldn't have found and bought my beautiful home without him! Now I not only have a great real estate agent but also have a great friend.

My wife and I both have experienced major health issues this year and were forced to sell our cabin. Ken Williams knew our situation and got our cabin sold quickly and for full asking price. Ken even offered to pack up our personal belongings and have them shipped to us. He also handled the closing without a hitch. We couldn't ask any more of a Realtor.

What more is there to say? Ken is a gem! I'll say it again: there are not enough positive adjectives in the English language to express how amazing Ken Williams is in every way. Ken Williams is the most capable, professional, caring real estate agent I have ever had the good fortune of working with on the sale of a property. There are not enough adjectives to adequately address how satisfied we are with what Ken did for us. You are beyond fortunate to have him working in your organization because he does everything right. Ken is amazingly wonderful in every way. Anyone fortunate enough to get Ken Williams as their agent is very blessed.

My first impression of Ken Williams was very positive. He was friendly, humorous, and knowledgeable. Ken was very familiar with the area, the process of buying a second home, and offered some contact info to assist us. Due to the fact that I live in Florida, Ken made it really easy for me to find the people I needed, such as a title company, insurance broker, and possible lender. He kept me informed of things I needed to know as well as suggestions of things I should find out about. I strongly recommend Ken Williams as YOUR choice when deciding on a Realtor to buy or sell your home! You will not find a more a trustworthy, reliable, professional!
