Whether it’s for exercise, relaxation, or just a way to keep the kids entertained, swimming is great.
But in New Jersey, thanks to Mother Nature, the outdoor pool season only lasts a few months. Maybe an indoor pool is the answer.
According to the company, the cost of installing an indoor pool can range from $40,000 to $200,000. fixerThe range takes into account what materials the pool is made of, the dehumidification system and even the structure that houses it. Fixer’s research found that the average cost of a 40-inch-deep 12-foot-by-24-foot indoor pool is about $95,000, with the concrete poolhis deck and fiberglasshis liner being used in the existing structure. .
Once installed, there are no huge costs associated with running an indoor pool.
Doreen DeMarco, Broker Associate at BHHS Fox & Roach Holmdel, a Holmdel-listed company with an indoor pool, said:
The home owner says it costs about $10 a month to run the pool.
Agents say homes with indoor pools are generally suitable for health-conscious people, those who empty their nests, or those who have some kind of disability and are good swimmers.
“Most buyers with young children want it,” said Mike Lundy, an agent for Caldwell Bunker Realty in Arendelle who specializes in Saddle River, where about 10 percent of homes have indoor pools. I am afraid,” he said.
“It’s like a tennis court. If they play tennis, they’re great, but if they don’t, people don’t want them in their yards,” he said.
According to Evan Siegel, a home appraiser at American Realty Appraisals in Westfield, an indoor pool increases a home’s value in much the same way an outdoor pool does.
“I don’t think you’re distinguishing the value of a nice indoor pool from a nice outdoor pool,” says Siegel. “There are[segments]who don’t want indoor pools, but rather want outdoor pools. But pools are more valuable now than they were before the pandemic.”
For homes under $1 million, the pool adds about $20,000 to $25,000 in value. In better homes worth over $1 million, the pool can be a $50,000 or more adjustment.
But just like outdoor pools, indoor pools may alienate some buyers, agents said.
“The subset of people looking for homes with indoor pools is much smaller than the number of people looking to buy homes,” said Richard Rutman., Keenlen Lattman Sotheby’s International Realty. “People who recognize the value…on days like today, they have a beautiful heated pool inside.”
