If you are considering a potential rental property with a pool there are several important considerations. Rental home pools have a host of additional liability and maintenance issues. In some areas, a pool might increase the desirability of your rental. In some places they add no value and may actually make it harder to rent the home. Location and neighborhood characteristics often dictate the overall desirability of rental home pools. In your assessment of the property consider all the additional management challenges the home will offer.
