Well it depends....

Usually in the first 5 years or so of pool construction you can get about half the value of the construction.  That value can be enhanced a bit if you have a view lot, etc.  The question I get a lot is how much pool or solar systems add value to a home.  They are locked into the costs and if they are recent, you should show the appraiser the actual cost of the system or pool.

However, more flexible areas of increased valuation that are views, cul-de-sac, corner lots, oversized lots, etc.  I have had clients put in a 120k in landscaping that included an incredible pool, spa, built in BBQ and tons of palms.  They ended up getting a valuation from the appraiser of $45k or so for extensive remodeling.  

Hope that helps!  Let me know if you have any more specifics.

A pool will add value to your property but not equal to what you pay. In the current market it will only increase it by a small amount but as prices go back up as they will eventually, assuming you plan to hold onto you home you will see a greater return.

HI Steff,
The only way to tell is by comps.
It may be 10,000, 30,000, or some other number depending on the hardscaping as well.
It usually makes for a much more attractive home to many buyers.
Having a home that is easier to sell may make it worth more as time is money.

Check the other pool homes in the area that have sold recently and are the same square footage and number of bedrooms.  No improvement, including a pool will give you what you paid for it.  However, pool homes are very easy to sell here so that is a definite advantage!
