The blue bars measure the average price per square foot of homes with pools while the brown bars measure the same for homes without pools. So how do we use this information?

First of all, the actual value of each has little value, because there are so many other value factors that determine what homes are worth. For example, a home with a pool in a subdivision probably won't do as well as a home without a pool on a hundred acres, right?

We use the change in the relative values above to get an idea of whether or not buyers are currently favoring homes with swimming pools. Thus far in 2021, they do not appear to be doing so, as pool homes are selling for about the same value as are homes with no pools. This means that pool homes are a value buy today, though not as strongly as in some years where they actually sold (relatively speaking) for less.
