What Makes a Pool Valuable?

Pool Location

Consider pool location and design to ensure it’s compatible with the aesthetic of the house.

Property Location

Warmer regions of Australia are the best places to consider adding a pool to your property.

Consider the demographics of potential buyers. A younger buyer might be attracted to a pool, as will families with young children.

How Expensive is it to Have a Pool?

A new plunge pool shell will cost you $12,500. Including installation, the entire project will likely cost around $25,000. Also, budget for ongoing maintenance costs of $800-$2000 annually. Fibreglass pools are durable and easy to maintain, making them a smart investment.

How To Ensure Your Pool Adds Value

The following 3 tips will help you choose the perfect pool and maintain it over time.


1. Pool Design

A timeless pool design will appeal to a wider clientele. If you have the space, consider adding features like a pool cabana and other functional outdoor areas to build a lifestyle around your pool. Not only does it increase your property value, but also makes it more comfortable to live in.

2. Maintenance

If you do install a pool, take good care of it. A poorly maintained pool can decrease the value of your property as it means more work for the new owners. Ensure that the pool is free from debris and algae. Also, consider investing in a pool cover.
