Yes, but not the way you are thinking. Purchasing a pool, in-ground or above ground, is an investment in your lifestyle. When you are trying to decide if a pool is a good investment you should first consider if it’s a good investment in your lifestyle. If you’ll enjoy using a pool, then it IS a good investment. Swimming is fun for the entire family. It keeps the kids at your house instead of at a friend’s house who has a pool. A pool can be for play, sunbathing, exercising or just to soak your feet.
If you are considering purchasing a pool to increase the value of your home then not so much. There are better choices to increase value like a kitchen update or bathroom remodel. When you install an in-ground pool you immediately eliminate half the potential buyers when you sell your home. Many homebuyers do not want a pool so they won’t consider your property. So you might look into an above ground pool since they can be removed if you outgrow pool ownership or you decide to sell your house and the new buyers don’t want a pool. Hope this opinion helps!
