PREMIUMS PAID FOR WATER FRONT AND POOL HOMES

When you are looking at Wilton Manors Homes For Sale, two important criteria are whether you want a waterfront property and whether your home should have a pool.

  • In 2019 the median price for Waterfront properties in Wilton Manors was 48% more on average than non waterfront properties ( so called “dry lots”) or a whopping $208,000 more! On average 20 to 25% of homes sold in Wilton Manors are waterfront properties. In 2019, it was 28%, a record.

Statistics are dangerous… This does not mean that the exact same home on the same street will sell 48% higher if it is on the water. This just means that if you want to live on the water, you are going to need a higher budget than the average buyer out there.

  • More surprisingly, in 2019 median prices for pool homes sold for an astounding 42% more than non pool homes. Approx. half the homes sold in 2014 and 2015 had a pool whereas it has been closer to 60% ever since, probably due to the many renovation projects in town that often include the addition of a pool. That number will likely continue to grow.

In $ terms, a pool home sells ON AVERAGE for a median price of $160,000 more than a non pool home.

While obviously there are different factors that explain such a difference (the main one is that pool homes are more likely to be upgraded e.g.), it appears that a pool home carries a premium. Since you can have a nice starter pool around $20,000, if you are willing to go through the real hassle of having a pool installed, you can potentially save a lot of money by buying a home without a pool and have the pool of your dream installed. Food for thoughts….

These numbers are based on median prices which are the main indicator for real estate prices (half the homes sell for more and the other half sell for less).
