Even more than taxes, your liquor bill will skyrocket once you get a pool, be it below or above, or anywhere in-between.

If money was no issue, in-ground.
few choices to add:

-like Elke said, None*...NIMBY would get some votes
-town pool
-village pool

AFAIK, In-grounds raise your taxes more than above-grounds. This is proven by looking at comps. But even in grounds do not cause that huge a tax increase in some cases. While I've seen other people get raped. I'd wait for an up market to put something like that in, otherwise the tax hit will be a lot more severe.

None of the above. I'm not a pool person.

Many of my friends have installed pools which take up a large portion of their yards between the pool, patios, water features and such. They've spent a great deal of money on these beautiful backyard sanctuaries and have created yards in which their children can no longer play.

Same exact thing happened to me. Now I would never own a home without a pool.

My vote is for a inground pool crooks. Better looking imo then above ground. Can get a nice flow out of the house on to the patio then right into pool(one level). Easier to clean unless you have a deck around the entire above ground pool.

Aside from the tax increase what about the insurance increase? Does inground have a higher liability than above ground?
