Homes in Palos Verdes with Pools

A client is doing a "down to the studs" remodel, and recently called to chat with me about what buyers want, as the probability is high the property will be listed next spring.  We chatted about flooring choices, kitchen finishes and cabinetry and the conversation segued to whether or not to install a swimming pool.

If they were planning to move in as originally planned, they would add a pool.  However, since the decision must be made now, while their future living location is still not decided, they are aware it may be a cost that will not be fully recovered if they sell.

After our conversation I was curious enough to check the MLS to see how many Palos Verdes homes currently for sale have a private swimming pool.  There are currently 189 single family homes for sale in Palos Verdes and 56 of those properties have private swimming pools.

It's easy to find a home in Palos Verdes with a pool as nearly one-third of the homes currently on the market have private swimming pools.  Prices begin at $950,000 for a home located on the east side of Rancho Palos Verdes and extend all the way to $53,000,000 for a Rolling Hills property.

If you're selling a Palos Verdes home with a pool, make sure it is in tip top operating condition and is clean and appealing to prospective buyers.  An attractive pool can be the tipping point for some buyers, but a pool that shouts money pit may well tip the buyers in the opposite direction.
