I think it’s all relative to *who* is looking to buy a house in your neighborhood. My neighborhood has always been for families with small kids looking to get into the local schools. Most of them would take the house with the pool faster than the comp house without it. Not everybody of course, but most of the people buying houses near me. At the moment about 50% of the hood have pools. People aren’t looking to retire and downsize in my neighborhood so the people looking to not have a pool are looking elsewhere. If my pool gets my house sold quicker and for the asking price, then it’s a defacto ROI versus the no pool house that sat for 6 months and came down $40k on their asking price. So I can not have any extra equity on paper but still get it if I get what I’m asking when the non pool house doesn’t have 3 people bidding for it.
