A common dilemma facing house hunters in New York City is whether or not to buy in a building with a pool, and how much this amenity will add to costs. Mirador Real Estate’s Kireolos Zakhary tells Brick Underground that the pool itself does not add dramatic increases to overall prices. “The pool is just one of the many amenities. The value of the unit is determined with everything else – not only the pool,” Zakhary explains.
However, since buildings with pools usually offer a bundle of other luxurious amenities, the prices of units with pools tend to be naturally higher than those that do not. Buildings with pools are also more common in expensive areas such as “neighborhoods with higher concentrations of new developments or condo conversions,” Zakhary notes, like Tribeca, Chelsea, and the Upper West Side.
