Why Master Bedrooms Are Important To Today’s Home Buyers

imagereader

Home buyers today want a master bedroom that serves as a sanctuary and peaceful getaway from their non stop, often overwhelming  schedules.  Because we spend up to one third of our lives sleeping, it’s really no surprise that master bedrooms are given special attention from buyers who desire a spacious and elegant retreat, a place where they can see themselves spending restful time at the end of a long day.

While desired features vary from buyer to buyer, the overwhelming majority would like a master bedroom with his and her walk in closets as well as spa like master baths. Location is also important.  First floor master suites have gained in popularity over the years for a variety of reasons, particularly for those that desire more privacy, are parents of older children, or simply weary of navigating stairs throughout the day.  In fact, most home builders today say it’s more and more common to see plans with a master bedroom  on the main level, at every price point,  especially with the trend toward multigenerational living..

 

Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty has a large portfolio of one of a kind homes, with stunning master suites that go from warm and cozy, to luxurious and spacious.  Here are just a few of the hundreds of properties offered for sale today.
