It's true Redding summers are HOT! If you are thinking about having a pool for the hot months ahead... think about this. Homes with pools sell for up to 5% more than homes without. The cost of having a pool installed can be up to $60k.
Pros and Cons of Buying a Home With a Pool
The benefits of owning a home with a built-in swimming pool include:
Pools can increase the aesthetic value of a property.
People who host a lot of parties utilize their pools for entertainment.
Pools provide an easy way to instantly cool down on hot days without having to travel to a public pool, which requires a fee or paid membership.
Some people use swimming pools exclusively for aquatic exercises and thus view pools as having health benefits.
Swimming pools can add value at resale, especially in hot climates.

I can't recommend Josh Barker's team more highly. I was selling my house right after retirement, and attempting to purchase a home in Washington State. All these events are stressful, but Josh's team made the whole process painless. Josh came to my home and his confidence and expertise made me feel at ease immediately. They were there every step of the way with friendly encouragement and professionalism. They communicated with me at every phase of the process and immediately responded to my numerous questions. Because of their skill and experience they were able to work through what was a coplicated transaction between states. I sold my home for over the asking price and purchased a new one within two weeks of putting my home on the market. I can't imagine working with any other realtor; each person on the team was genuinely caring, and i always knew I was in good and capable hands. -Janice W.
From the first time that we met with Josh, and all the way through until we had out house sold, it was a fantastic experience. Josh and his team are the best that I have ever dealt with. We also bought our new house with Josh Barker. I cannot recommend him enough. -Terry F.
From start to finish our buying and selling experience was seamless. Josh and his team are attentive and honest, and quickly gained our confidence. Over the years my wife and I have bought and sold multiple homes with him. I recommend Josh and his team to everyone in need. -Chason S.
We highly recommend Josh Barker and his Real Estate Team to anyone who is serious about selling a house. They make an exceptional team that thoroughly exceeded our expectations. They were always very knowledgeable, responsive, and had masterful techniques for negotiating on our behalf. Most importantly, they all showed genuine care when helping us and we felt as if they were part of our family as they had our best interest in mind each step of the way. Again, we appreciate and highly recommend them as leaders in this profession. -Cathy S.
From the first moment Josh Barker walked into our home, my wife and I knew that we chose the right man to help through the difficult tasks of marketing, selling, and moving from our home in Redding, CA. Throughout the entire process, Josh and his team continually impressed us with their knowledge, professionalism, strategy, courtesy and willingness to assist us at all times. To Josh's credit, within the first five days of being listed for sale, our home was shown 14 times. We received 5 offers and accepted one that was considerably higher than our initial listing price. It could not have gone any smoother. If possible, I would have give Josh a 10 star rating. I wholeheartedly recommend Josh to any and all potential home sellers. GREAT JOB, JOSH!!! -Bob O.
