Realtors often note that having a first floor bedroom is a terrific feature for resale. Young buyers, especially families with two working parents, think about nanny/au pair space for their busy lifestyle to help with the kids. Also, young buyers who have family that lives out of town love a first floor guest room. This way everyone has their privacy and guests don’t have to navigate full staircases when they visit.
If you’re contemplating your next home’s floor plan, give it some thought! It might be just exactly what you need – now and later! This is a very desirable feature in luxury homes and can be a challenge, especially if the home’s floor plan is designed for main level entertaining. Several of my listings have a floor plan that includes a versatile first floor bedroom space.
