Indoor pools sound like the ultimate amenity, but not so fast On the housing market, a home with an indoor pool can be a tough sell

Only a small fraction of the luxury homes listed in the U.S. come with indoor pools. It is an amenity that is as rare as it is controversial. And while it may seem like a special 爱上海

bonus, indoor pools can actual hurt value.

Perhaps surprisingly, indoor pools add little to property values and may be difficult to sell down the road, real estate experts told the Wall Street Journal.

“It’s a highly personalized amenity that requires a lot of maintenance,” appraiser Jonathan Miller said. “That’s not for everybody, but the ones that have it would swear by it.”

th indoor pools priced over $1 million were asking only 4 percent more per square foot than homes without上海千花网论坛

a pool. But homes with indoor pools were actually asking 2 percent less than homes with outdoor pools.

Obviously, the expense of upkeep is a big disincentive for potential buyers. The dehumidification systems alone can cost another $50,000. So if you’re looking to make a splash on the housing market, build your pool outdoors, or maybe not at all.[WS阿拉爱上海同城
