So I think that if an investor would consider purchasing a real estate he will take this under considiration.
I actually bought a one bedroom house over 20 years ago. I listened to the realtor who sold it to me who said it would never appreciate as much as a 2 bedroom house, I couldn't rent out a room if I lost income, etc. etc., then did what felt right.
Today I still have my cute little one bedroom house and I've never regretted my purchase. The house fit my budget, my location requirements, need for privacy and a view, and my sense of funky charm. Over the years I've watched it climb from $83,000 to $175,000, down to $135,000, up to $550,000 and now down to who knows where. But it has always been a source of joy while living in it or great income while renting it out.
Don't always follow the pack and buy what is perceived to be the better investment from the standpoint of having the house with the largest pool of buyers when you want to sell. The important thing to remember is to buy something that fits YOU, now and for as long as you think you'll be in the house.
Best wishes to you in buying that house, one bedroom or two.

A one bedroom house/condo is going to raise the same questions in another prospective buyer as they raise in you. If you have doubts, there is a good chance buyers in the future will have doubts when you are selling it.
Most importantly, it appeals to a much smaller number of buyers. If the price is right, there will be a buyer, so make sure you get a good deal on the buy side so you can afford to price it well when you sell. One bedrooms do make good rental properties, so perhaps you won't have to sell if you can rent it out for your payments or more. Please let me know if I can be of assistance. Reid@LAHomesExpert.com

Nothing is ever difficult to sell, so long as you're understanding the comparable sales when you go to sell in the future & are not unreasonable of what the market (or your trusted Realtor) at that time, is telling you the value is.
Of course with lot size & your own budget permitting, adding on a secondary bedroom would help you to make money on this home in the future!
