If you're looking for homes with swimming pools in Rio Rancho you're in the right place. There are not that many pool homes in town, but you can use this button to see them all now:
Home shoppers moving in from other states often ask me "why aren't there more pool homes for sale in Rio Rancho?" I think there are two reasons. First of all, the temperatures here are not that hot. It's not like Phoenix where the heat is unbearable without a pool. Second, we have regular seasons including winter (although it is mild in comparison to the Illinois winters I experienced growing up), so the swimming pool season is not as long as you might think.
One thing you might want to consider is whether or not you think that having a swimming pool adds value to a house. Are you willing to pay more to get a home with a pool and if so, how much more should you pay?
I know in other markets where homes are expected to have pools the answer is yes. Take Phoenix for example, Phoenix Swimming Pool Homes are very popular and they do usually sell for more.
Here in New Mexico the answer is maybe. It really depends on recent sales. Have any pool homes in the are sold recently and did those homes sell for more? If the answer is yes then an appraiser can probably find the comparable sales they need to value the house at a higher price. If there are no recent comps, or if the comps show the other buyers have not paid more for homes with pools then the answer may be no.
There are several public swimming pools in town. Haines park in southern Rio Rancho has one, so does Cabezon, and of course there is the popular Rio Rancho Aquatic center.
