Benefits of a Master on the Main Level
Everyone has a different list of priorities when it comes to home features and floor plans. What's important to someone depends on numerous factors such as lifestyle, family size, tastes and health. However, there are some home features that have consistently become more important to home buyer/owners. One of these features is having the master bedroom on the main level. Because so many people now want a house with a "master on the main", having this feature tends to improve resale value and overall appeal.
Aside from the economic benefits, many people today want a master on the main is because of its convenience. A main level bedroom tends to be easily accessible to the rooms people spend the most time in (kitchen, living room, etc). With most people living a very busy lifestyle, low maintenance convenient living has become more and more popular.
Another obvious reason why many seek out homes with a master on the main is due to physical limitations. As people get older and their bodies begin to break down, the goal is to avoid using stairs as much as possible. In fact, this is typically one of the most important home features for those who are retired or are close to retiring. Main level bedrooms have become heavily sought after by the baby boomer generation. And since they are such a large percentage of the population, the overall demand for main level bedrooms has increased as the baby boomers have aged.
Privacy also plays a factor in the rising demand for a mater on the main. Parents with older children are wanting to live in a separate part of the house. There is also a growing trend in this country of extended family living under the same roof. In these scenarios, the preference is to have some space between families within the house.
