Does having an in-ground pool affect the selling price of a house?

Yes it does. You can ask more for your home. I live in British Columbia and our (get lots of rain here at times) but, if someone has a pool in their backyard you can add anywhere from $10,000 up to $30,000 depending on the size of the pool. Unforutantely it would take a fairly wealthy person to maintain pools in this day and age with the price of electricity, so many perfer to stay away from pools. Depends how hot it is where you live. Good luck Marcy
