When you’re exploring amenities for your home—whether that’s shopping for new homes with existing amenities or adding amenities to your existing home through renovations—you want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. And one amenity that can add serious value? A pool.

    According to a recent study from LendingTree, in the US, the median home without a pool is valued at $305,152—while the median home with a pool is valued at $469,187. That’s a whopping 54 percent increase in value for homes that feature a pool!

    The Takeaway:

    What does that mean for you? If you want to make a real splash in the real estate world—and drive higher values for your home—buying a home with a pool (or adding one yourself) is an amenity you’ll definitely want to explore.
