How much does a NON-split bedroom floor plan affect the resale value of a house?

Asked by Alex, Phoenix, AZ Fri Jan 7, 2011

All bedrooms are on one side of the one-level house. The master bedroom and a second bedroom are separated by a common wall. Two additional contiguous bedrooms (bedrooms 3 and 4) are separated from the master bedroom by the master bathroom and hallway. How unpopular is this type of floor plan? Thank you.

Alex,
You often see this type of floor plan in older homes that have (or had) only one bath, and there is a certain logic to grouping all the bedrooms nearby. So, if the home is an older one, Buyers probably won't be surprised to find all the bedrooms at one end of the house.

This type of arrangement is less common in newer homes, and therefore might be more of an issue. However, I really believe that a bigger factor is privacy. If two bedrooms are "buffered" by closets or a bathroom between them, then their location near each other doesn't matter as much. Good luck with your purchase.
