Much depends on the type / size of the home. For example, a luxury home, without a pool may have its value degradated for no pool.

Just depends

All I have to say is I'm sure glad I have a pool in my backyard or today would not be nearly as enjoyable at 106 degrees.

If you need me today, I'll be by the money pit with a cocktail...

We have owned three homes in (the city of) Phoenix in 32+ years. The first one had a pool and was a selling point when we moved from Virginia. The second one was new construction and we bought (did not finance) a pool as we thought it would be a good thing for our sons as they grew up (and had liked the first one). When we shopped for our third house, the boys were grown and it was not a must-have. However, the house that we found met all of our requirements and it had a pool. I am not sure whether we would have paid the same price or expected a lower price without the pool but it was what we were looking for so we bought it. We have tended to look at homes as "where we are going to live" rather than an investment, which is how I think a lot of people here approach the situation. It turns out that we actually use the pool more here than we ever did in the previous two places. Who knew?

This is not yet another "heat" thread, or a "have a pool or not" or "how do you people get by without pools?" thread. Perhaps it's veering off topic because the topic has been covered.

Thanks, everyone. Closed.
