I have always wanted a pool. Growing up a was constantly trying to convince my parents that a pool would be a great idea. Even to this day I’ll playfully drop the subject on them despite not living there anymore. I was always quickly denied and given the reason of “too much work.” I don’t doubt that for a second, but for some crazy reason I’m blind to that fact and still want a pool!
However, when it comes to an investment property, not so much. My partner looked at a house the other day that was a hot mess on the outside. Needed tones of landscaping and also had an in-ground pool. The pool was in pretty bad shape and probably would cost a lot of money to fix. In our analysis of the property, we decided that it would be best to fill in the pool and call it a day. The only problem is that we are unsure of the cost. I’ve seen ranges anywhere from $700 all the way up to $5000.
Every situation is different I guess….
- What is the pool made out of?
- How big is the pool?
- Is there a lot of surrounding concrete or pavers? and what to do with it?
- How deep is the pool?
- Is it easily accessible for large equipment?
- What are the towns regulations about filling in the pool?
The questions just keep coming and it doesn’t seem as simple as just getting a boat load of dirt and just filling in the hole. One of the investors we talked to mentioned that they usually break up all the concrete and put that in the bottom of the pool, then fill the rest in with dirt.
Has anyone ever filled in a pool? How did you do it and how much did it cost you?
