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.

From the moment I decided to make a move to Asheville, Laura began working to help me with my relocation. She kept me informed, provided me with housing options in my price range - and once I made a choice - she proceeded in a timely and efficient manner to carry me through the contractural process. I couldn't be more pleased and know that Laura continually went the extra mile to make my transition an easy and smooth process.

We were out of town and she took care of the home inspections for us and I realize that this was something she did not have to do, in fact, she volunteered to do it for us. From start to finish this was a great experience with very few problems along the way. If anything came up that we did not understand Laura was very patient explaining the details to us. We have already started telling people how great it was to work with Laura and will continue to do so. She is very personable, friendly, has great knowledge about the area as well as very professional and if we ever need to buy or sale again Laura is the one we will call.
