It depends. Really it does. Some say it is no longer important.  Others insist on one.  Others prefer two. Still others want e be a suite. Gotta love real estate and the choices!

No, I do not see home buyers here in our niche asking for more than one master Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, though many like split bedroom floorplans.  If there were two masters (in a split plan), then a third smaller bedroom would be ideal - especially if one had a live-in care worker.  Age-restricted communities can have different challenges.  If you had either a large family (kiddos) or lived in a multi-generational household (inlaws), more bedrooms would be a plus!

Andrew, a client of mine put an offer on a house recently that had four bed/bath combs. The only way you could tell where the master was - was because it was three times bigger than the others. I would have loved to have grown up with a bath with my bedroom, but it is not the norm here.

A second master, with one on the main floor is a bonus.  Many immigrants from around the world locating here with family that comes to stay for extended periods. Having a great bedroom without stair access is very attractive to many buyers.

This is interesting as I was just wondering if it would increase the value of our house enough to add a master to the ground floor. Sounds like it might! I don't think 2 master bedrooms are all that common around here yet though.

Living in Florida, we see the need for 2 master bedrooms more and more,
Whether it is bringing parents back into the home, guest suite, or even when couples switch to seperate bedrooms.
For the 2 story homes , we need at least one master downstairs.

The term "master" bedroom here usually refers to the largest bedroom,  have walk-in closets and en-suite bath...  We don't get requests for that sort of thing here... but sometimes another bedroom with it's own en-suite is a bonus... but that room is usually a standard size and not as large as a master suite.
