For a modest 7600 SF lot (including ranch house), which type of pool would you recommend?

Ah, impossible to answer given the info. You would need to know the dimensions of the footprint of the house relative to the entire plot. Then depending upon the individual towns, the setback rules. Also your pocketbook as in ground is considerably more expensive. Then there is the fencing that is necessary regardless of your choice. The questions you are asking are dependent upon personal choice once you have eliminated the municipality regulations and finances.

Doubt you'd get a setback for an IGP on that size lot these days. But as noted much depends on the dimensions of the plot. We wanted a large yard when we moved to NC, but what we found when we were looking at houses was many houses on .30 or larger but wonky plot dimensions and/or bad elevations.

No pool.
Go to the beach.
Pick up some bagels and pizza on the way.

If you’re going to do a pool do it right. Inground!

If it's for 8 yr olds, AGP. If you expect adults to enjoy it, IGP. I learned the hard way. lol

Kids will love a 55 gallon drum filled with water if that’s what you provide. Inground is an investment but well worth the money. My kids spend every day in the pool which gets my wife and I into the pool. Quality family time!! In the end, to each his own. Above ground and semi ingrounds look real nice with some decking around them.

Since pools add no value to the resale of the property, go with an above ground. Fraction of the cost.

I agree that in ground pools add no value on resale. In fact, it eliminates many buyers who do not want one. I would suggest an above ground. As your kids get older you may find that you don't use it as much and may want to remove it.
