I was showing homes yesterday to a family of four, many homes were similar with similar amenities. One particular home had a gorgeous rocked/concrete in-ground pool. The house was great, very similar to the other homes in the neighborhood, however this home appeared to be one of the only homes in this particular neighborhood with a pool. This pool was definitely an eye catcher with a built in rocked spa! I can't deny that I along with these potential buyers were dreaming of diving in on this hot, humid day in Dawsonville, Georgia! The home that I was showing was priced at $225,000, this pool retailed for around $45,000, one would guess that the quality of this pool would boost the value of this home. Not necessarily! The big question that buyers ask once the daydream of week...
