It was about 10 years ago that real estate agents and experts starting warning homeowners about the risks of having swimming pools in the backyard and how they can lower the value of the property. Thankfully for all of us who like to take a dip in the comforts of home, this stat no longer holds water (pun intended). We now know that while some buyers prefer to not have a pool in the backyard, there is a completely separate market of ones who do.
My latest renovation happened to have a similar story. Buyers Stew and Rebecca overlooked the weeds and neglected yard when purchasing their home because they saw the potential of the saltwater swimming pool that was already installed. They just needed me to come in and help them come up with a vision for the space.
