The oddest factor is that it is ONE BEDROOM townhouse. I have seen high-end condos that only have one bedroom, but townhouse? Not in my memory bank... I mean even if the place was set-up with a big loft or den or home office of some other "flexible space" the requirements for it to be listed in MLS as 2Br were always there...

Even in a really "one off" kind of situation I would be very reluctant to but have a three-fixture (or more...) masterbath -- if that means stealing a bit of room from a closest of even moving the wall in the bedroom a bit I would think that sort of thing would be needed to keep the buyer pool from being far too narrow.

My wife and even her mother both much prefer showers to bath but if I were to try convincing either of them that a "car wash shower" would be a better use of the space they would NEVER go for it. You open a weird can of worms when you go against the norms -- folks start looking for excuses like "how quickly will we use hot water" , "is this going to be hard to keep clean" , "what REASONS did they do this for"...

Too unconventional is NEVER smart!!!!

I'd go with the tub. Even if people don't use it, they may have a dog that needs a wash from time to time, plus I think you'd severly limit your buying pool if there's no tub in the house.

The jazzy shower sounds fab, but I wouldn't buy your house if there was no tub, no matter how nice that shower is

tub/shower//// even bachelor men like to soak now & then I imagine And what if a bachelorette is interested? Don't know about others, but shaving legs in a shower is a pita, at least for me;0

What do the other recently sold in the area have??

Thanks for the input. We are going with a tub/shower combo!

Motel 6 doesn't have tubs, neither do many homes in Mexico. Personally, the deluxe shower sounds great, but lack of tub will ultimately lower the value.
