I'm currently looking at homes and was wondering if anyone can give me a ball park figure on how much it costs to put in an inground pool. I was looking a pool homes, but found some I like with no pool, so this would help.

Also, do you have any idea how much covering it with those screened enclosures runs?

Thanks/

I have dealt with the feasibility of adding a pool vs buying a home with one. For the average nice pool... nothing too fancy the prices I've seen seem to be about $50-60k. For the most part it is far more economical to buy a home with one but in a few places you can add one cheaper than buying it.

I've seen everything from $30K to 150K. If you sign the contracts in the fall you can usually get a pretty good break.

In this market you are much better off to find a house with a pool, much more cost effective than having one put in!

I have to agree with Guntersville Boomer. You are better off finding a house that already has a pool. Let's say you pay $40k on a pool, chances are you will only get half that investment back. We looked at purchasing a house without a pool and by the time we did the math of adding the pool and the hassle it would be to dig a hole and install one we just decided we would be better off buying a house with a pool. We waited and found a house at the same price in the same neighborhood with a great pool!
