I would think it depends on what state you reside. Obviously if you live in Maine, a pool is not going to be used in the same way it would if you lived in Florida. And therefore wouldn't be much of an asset. I do know that regardless of where you live, homeowners insurance rates rise considerably when you have a pool.

Our real estate agent says only in-ground pool adds a little value to home meaning you can get a little more for it. Above ground pools do nothing and actually can be hinderance because not everyone wants a pool. thankfully its is removable.

Half-baths contain a toilet and a sink, but no bathtub or shower stall. The National Association of Home Buyers estimates that adding a half bath will add 10.5% to the value of a home and adding a full bath will add 20%. Depending on the value of your home, adding either may be more costly than what you will recoup when selling your home.

It may add some value to your home, but probably not as much as it would cost to remodel and have one put in.
