@ehmmgee:  Homeowner without a pool commenting… I didn’t want the expense or upkeep of owning a pool myself,  so I chose a swim/tennis/golf community to purchase my home in. There’s also a water slide! Obviously, we can’t make use of it now due to COVID and my son is quite small but it will be fun in the future.

I live in Northern CA as well. When my husband and I were house hunting 2 years ago, we specifically wanted to find a house WITHOUT a pool. We have dogs and wanted a real yard where they could run and play, and we also wanted a garden and plenty of shade trees. Most of the houses we saw with pools, the pool and concrete made up basically the entire yard. If you have a nice big lot and really can have both the yard and the pool, that’s a different story. For me, I would rather join a country club and go swim there- get some social time while you’re at it- than turn my backyard into a slab of concrete.

Where I live pools used to be a neutral in terms of resale or even a liability. That’s all changed now with the pandemic as homes with pools are being snapped up and going well above asking price with bidding wars.
