Here in Arizona, pools are money. Homes sell faster with a pool and appraisers will positively adjust for a pool giving $8K - $15K to the value of a home for having a pool.

User, Wetdawgs is correct, a pool can negativelt affect your homes value in Illinois. An inground, heated pool can be a plus however. I would expect your homes value to go up by the price of the pool. Jim

Zestimates are a starting point for comparing properties, and are calculated from core public facts such as size, lot size, room number, tax assessed value and last sales value.    Features such as pools and upgrades are not directly used, only indirectly as reflected in the sales/tax history.

In my area (and many areas of the US), a pool would be a huge negative sales both dropping the price and decreasing the potential buyers dramatically.
