Installing a swimming pool adds $26k to a Cape Coral house.

The waterfront wonderland has been included in the top 20 metros for adding value to the typical home.

The report from Redfin says pools boost Cape Coral home values by $26,115.47 on average. The average pool premium per square foot is $15.02, placing the city 12th in the list. Just 6.7% of homes sold in 2018 in the city had a swimming pool.

The ranking is limited to metro areas with at least 5,000 homes sold in 2018 where at least 2% of homes sold had pools, and where the results were statistically significant.

Redfin agent Katie Shook says, “But the reverse is true in the luxury market. In the $700,000 to $1 million price range, especially in remote areas with more yard space, homebuyers expect a pool and they’ll pay a premium for it.”
