You will extremely limit your potential buyers with no tub. A master suite doesn't need a tub. Typically you will find the main bathroom will have the tub. I would make sure 1 bathroom in the house has a tub.
if you have only one bath room I think you want a tub combo.. although it really varies by person.
we are in the process of taking a tub out because the new buyer only wants a stand up shower :)
but that's ok in new construction.
I am renting a place w/ a "tub" but it's actually one of those elderly sit down tubs that is basically worthless to me. The other bathroom has a shower..... so we just use that.
Now, I live in a high demand area, and my unit has other things that make up for the odd bathroom. 1 year later it's almost a deal breaker for me, more annoying then anything else. I guess what I am trying to say is you might have a little harder time renting it and probably higher turnover as people try it for a year and are over it...
@Ivy Flowers You touched on it by mentioning kids. You'll be cutting out the potential buyers that have children.
My family would/could never have a house without a tub. I think anyone with younger kids will be removed from your pool of buyers.
The latest house i just bought for a rental doesnt have a tub , it has a handicap shower , it replaced the tub . My wife says someone with small kids wont rent it . And I said someone with out kids will
Thank you all, I think it’s pretty clear I need a tub in this house because it is a very family friendly neighborhood.
