Is a property worth less with no bath?

If a property only has a shower room rather then a bath does this lower the value of the property and if so by what percentage?

  • Not necessarily, so as a number of people these days prefer to shower than bath, like anything, it's all a matter of taste so some may even prefer it. If it has a large family house then people with children will potentially be put off, however I assume it originally had a bath so you could say that if they dont like just a shower they can refit a bath.

  • As long as there is room to put a bath in, I don't think a shower instead of bath de-values a property as such. It always comes down to who the buyer is and what they are willing to do when they buy your home. As said above, most people prefer showers these days.

  • I agree maybe it would 10/15 years ago but not now. Again as long as there is space to accomodate a bath should a new owner want one I can't see there being an issue.
