Often times one of the items on a home buyers "want" list is a swimming pool, and unfortunately it's often one of the first items removed from the list when the right house doesn't have one.
If you fall into this category then it is likely you've considered having your own backyard oasis installed. The cost of adding a pool start in the mid $20,000's and can certainly go up from there, depending of course how many back yard amenities you want to go with it.
If you've done some research you've likely found it's not only the cost of the pool, but also the interest rates that pool companies are charging these days. With rates in the mid "teens" it's another hard blow to the dream of having a pool.
