How Much Does It Cost to Own a Pool?

Beyond the other benefits of having a pool in your backyard, many buyers wonder whether or not a pool is a smart real estate investment.

On average, installing a pool on your property can cost a minimum of around $40,000. In most cases, there are additional costs associated with landscaping and fencing. Once the pool is installed, there are additional utility costs associated with maintenance and upkeep. Overall, you’re looking at a monthly operating cost of around $150 for maintenance, water, and more.

However, what you’re really paying for is the convenience of having a place to cool off and relax right in your own home. For homeowners in College Station, a home with a pool can add a ton of enjoyment and recreational value to your home, especially on those hot summer days. So, it’s more of an investment in quality of life than in real estate value.
