First I'm sorry if this is not in the right spot. I wasn't sure where to post this.
I'm looking at purchasing a home with an in ground pool. This house was a previous foreclosure and the pool hasn’t been used in about 6yrs to my investigation.
A local pool company had an estimate back in 2008 to repair the pool. It needs a new liner and vermiculite replace. At that time is was about $10K. Best guess now is probably close to $15K. It is a 16X32 pool not sure how deep but it had a diving board. The pump and filter look in good shape but I have no idea if they work or anything else.
We live in Michigan and currently have a 5K gal 16’ Intex pool. We love the idea of upgrading our house and pool but the big question is it worth the investment? Our realtor has told us pools add no value and many view as a liability.
I hate to fill this in as I know it was a huge investment initially. We would still like to have a pool, option to fill in the current pool and install a REAL aboveground.
Has anyone ran into anything like this? Any suggestions, options or opinions are appreciated.
