I agree with this, it really depends on what you want. I would be shocked if you can do anything other than what's included in a builders basic package for less than $50k at this point. Maybe you can get into the $40s with some give.Basic pool packages for a 12x24 pool were quoted to me about 28k. Then for your desired lenght and width, you have to add more linear ft, (one guy quoted me 3k for 10 Liner feet) Adding a spa is about 10k-15k more. Then you have to add decking (this depends on how much sqft and if your going with basic pavers, travertine, sand blasted marble, etc.) and if you want more lights (they are around 750 for one more or less for multicolored) and adding a sunshelf, (2-3k) heater (4-5k), if you want bubblers ( 1-2k) if you want glass tile some PB charge you more (about 1k with one guy) better pumps, better filter, saltwater system, if you want to upgrade the plaster, if you want automation, etc. most quotes came out to be 60k+ I did not add a cage so idk about that. Pools are not cheap. I almost died when I found out how much for a “basic” pool
I agree, there can be big differences...the price range for the 3 I got quotes from like 80-102k. When I first started looking and wrongly thought I could stay around 70k, one pool builder said their minimum was 90k!I live in tampa and just signed a contract. I suggest calling as many builders as possible. We found a pretty big price disparity between builders. It got to the point where we discussed our budget over the phone before anyone came out. Several straight up said they wouldn't do anything less than 60k due to demand.
