SWIMMING pools may be pricey but they are certainly in demand. And figures show homebuyers in Spain’s biggest cities are prepared to spend big bucks.

Property portal Idealista.com has revealed that the average Madrid home with a swimming pool is 34% more expensive than one without a pool.

In Barcelona, that disparity rockets to 124%.

Of course, the rarer the pool, the more desirable it is. A whopping 21% of Madrid homes on the market feature swimming pools, while in Barcelona, that number is just 7.6%.
