Boston Condos for Sale and Apartments for Rent


Massachusetts Realtors Survey

Bathroom remodeling trends in recent years have focused on removing the bathtub and supersizing the shower. But that could actually hurt a property’s resale value, depending on the buyers you’re trying to attract.

First-time home buyers say they want a shower-tub combo, ranking it highest among 18 bathroom features, according to the National Association of Home Builders’ What Home Buyers Really Want, 2021 Edition. The study asked first-time buyers to rate key home features, from “essential” to “do not want.”

Forty-two percent of first-time buyers surveyed call a home with both a shower stall and bathtub in the primary bath desirable; 30% called it essential and a must-have, according to the survey. They also ranked linen closets and a private toilet compartment in the primary bath to be important in their home search.

In the latest REALTOR® Confidence Index, Massachusetts real estate brokers responded to a survey in which  they expect home prices in Massachusetts to increase between 3%-5% in the nest 12 months.
