Pricing is an issue that comes up every time I meet with a new customer. There is no way I can tell you how much you should spend on your pool project because ultimately it is whatever number you feel comfortable spending. However, I can recommend a process for determining a budget if you have no idea where to start. Typically you want to stay within 10-25% of the value of the home. This will ensure you don’t over-build, or, just as important, under-build your project. There is a large difference between 10-25%, however. The reason for this is, if your home is valued at $350,000 or less, 10% is not enough to build a pool, so your budget will be closer to the 20% range, and if you live in a multi-million dollar home, 25% may not be necessary in order to build a magnificent project. The main priority is to establish a budget for your pool project that remains consistent with the home valuation. This will help you to regain your investment, if and when you decide to sell your home.
I hope this helps, and thanks for reading,
