I know it's an old thread, but I thought having a pool did not increase the value of the home. Assesment wise, anyway.

I know if I didn't want a pool I wouldn't buy a home with one. I realize that life changes though, and so do wants and needs.

I s'pose if we filled ours in that we'd have the coolest putting green in the neighborhood.

I don't think you get the $$ value of the pool you put in.

One of those cases where if you spend the dollars on an improvement around your house, you may NOT see the total benefit.

The permit was $150 and I think the pump was $40. The actual demolition cost me $5400 including tax which covered the demolition, backfill and rebuilding the fence. The guys did a good job. I was concerned about collateral damage but they were skillful enough not to wreck anything they weren't supposed to.
Searcher521 - Can I ask what company you used? I am in Tempe and we have to fill this pool in. Any advice or direction would be appreciated.

I couldn't help but notice this is only your second post and the person you are asking last posted in this thread in October 2008. S/he may no longer be subscribed and may not see your question.
