How old is the pool? How old is the liner? What condition is it in? How old is the pump?
These are things you will need to know as this may affect the amount of work and upkeep required. All pools require some weekly maintenance and chores, but much of that depends on how it has been taken care of.
You can sell an above ground pool, but taking it down and putting it back up is a lot of work and will likely require the new owner getting a new liner (I helped my parents do this a few years ago.) The only way I would personally want to deal with all that is if I found someone to sell it to "as is" with the understanding the buyer would have to disassemble it and haul it away themselves.
Hope this helps.

Let your insurance company know when it's gone. Some companies charge extra if they saw an above ground pool and even a trampoline on the premises duringthe pre-purchase inspection.

I'm really not sure what you could sell it for. Maybe you could check some sale ads and see what others are going for.

Could you give more info on the pool please? Brand, size, shape of the liner and the beams. Brand of pump? How much are you asking? Could you send me some pics of the pool?

Yes when I move I can. It will be a month or so before I can get you all that info.
