Homes For Sale With Pool- Henderson
Looking at homes for sale with a pool in Henderson simply makes sense. With our warm and sunny climate, you’ll want to consider buying a home for sale with a pool.
In Henderson, the climate is warmer than in Las Vegas during the summer. Having a pool is a great reason to enjoy your backyard more often.
A typical swimming pool adds $25,000-$40,000 to the price of the home. The cost to build a new swimming pool is rarely under $30,000.
Just like landscaping, pools vary widely in size, complexity, shape, and cost. Some have waterfalls that add value and some also have heated spas. Invisible Edge pools or Infinity pools create the feeling of spaciousness and often enhance a view.
How Many Homes Have Pools In Henderson
Looking out an airplane window when approaching Mc Carran Airport, it seems that almost every home in Henderson and Las Vegas has a swimming pool. That may be close to the truth depending on the area, and the price range. Henderson also has many pool alternatives.
Homes for sale with a pool in Henderson are convenient. Many home communities have community pools which are also convenient. There is also an aquatic center in Henderson.
You can also find homes near a public pool. Green Valley Ranch Aquatic Center is great, and Cowabunga Bay is fun. Many Hotel/Casinos now offer a “Per Day Use Pass.” Besides the initial cost to build a pool, pools require maintenance and additional utility costs to operate.
Today I looked in The MLS for homes for sale with a pool in Henderson. Amazingly, 35% of Henderson homes that are currently for sale have a swimming pool. The average may be a bit skewed because in homes for sale above $500,000, 67% of them have swimming pools in their backyard.
Advantages of Having a Pool
As with most things, having a home with a pool has advantages and disadvantages. Among the advantages are that you’ll have a ready-made recreation area
for you and your family and friends to enjoy.
Pools are a great addition to a barbeque or a party. In our climate, pool temperature can reasonably be comfortable for about 6 months out of the year. Spas are used year-round.
Depending on your age and familial status, advantages are different. When we had kids at home, having a pool was great for their group to hang out at our house.
We had a lot of fun in the pool together as a family. The dog loved barking and running around the pool attacking splashes.
As we became empty-nesters, the spa was used much more than the pool. Leaving the window open and hearing the pool’s waterfall was a luxury. I love the feelings of peace and the serenity that the sound of water in our yard gives me.
On a hot day, you’re able to go into the pool whenever your want. To me, staying as long as you want and sleeping outside is worth the cost of pool service every month.
Why do you want a pool?
Disadvantages of Having a Pool
The disadvantages of having a home with a pool are different for different people. It’s all about ‘Point of View.” The cost of utilities will probably be over $50 a month during the summer months.
Owning a pool and doing the chemicals and cleaning yourself is a big commitment that needs to be done every week. Some people enjoy it. Others complain about paying a service to clean and chemicalize the pool each week.
I have gratitude that there are pool services to clean the pool, I don’t have to clean it. My wife cleaned their pool weekly as a teen and refuses to ever do it again.

Do you have plants in the yard that will put debris in the pool? How old is the equipment? What type of equipment do you have? Do you use an automated cleaning system?
Pool Safety and Liability
Another disadvantage is potential safety and liability issues. The trend is to put rocks, tables, and seating in the pool.
The problem we’ve seen with this trend is that kids can’t resist using those things as launch pads. Pointed corners in a pool can also be a problem.
I would recommend against an investor purchasing a property with a pool unless they plan to reside in the property in the future or the house was a great deal. Pool fences help to mitigate safety concerns for many people.
Hiring a lifeguard for under $100 for a child’s birthday party is something to consider. Your peace of mind is worth every penny.
Building A Swimming Pool
If you want a pool, homes for sale with a pool in Henderson, aren’t your only option. Consider finding a home for sale in Henderson without a pool, designing one, and having it built.
Building a swimming pool can take up to 6 months to complete. The time to build Las Vegas pools depends on the time of year you start. Winter will be considerably quicker than spring.
The expense involved in building a pool many include an interest rate consideration. If you get a home with an existing pool, the price of the pool is at the 3-5% interest rate that the home loan has.
If you build and finance a pool, the interest rate can be 18% or higher. HELOC’s are often used for building pools. A HELOC is easy to attain and has lower interest rates.
If you choose to build a pool, you’ll find that shopping for a pool can be confusing. Every company likes X and dislikes Y. Of course, they specialize in X.
To avoid all the mumbo-jumbo, you might want to hire a pool designer to design your pool to your specs. Once you have your pool plans, show your plans to pool contractors. They will all bid on your design with your finish choices.
What Kind Of Pool Do You Want?
A pool, a spa, a pool with a spa, or none of the above are all up to you. We can look for a home for sale with a pool in Henderson, but also in Las Vegas, or North Las Vegas too.
At the end of the day, you should buy a home with a pool if it’s what suits your lifestyle the best. If you want a pool, I use my years of experience with pools to look for red flags while viewing homes.
There can be rust on the side of the pool or bubbles in the plaster. Cracks in the cement deck and trees with large roots that might be breaking through the PVC pipes under the deck. No matter what, if you are buying a home with a pool, ALWAYS get pools inspected.
