Does a swimming pool add $100,000 in value?
This is deceiving - my guess is the lower-priced neighborhoods have more homes without swimming pools, while most homes in the higher-priced neighborhoods have swimming pools. So we're comparing median prices from different priced neighborhoods.
The chart makes it look like a home with a swimming pool is worth a lot more than a home without one, but that isn't necessarily true. This is a case where the numbers don't tell the whole story.
