I have seen many buyers in our areas who prefer to have a walk in shower over a shower/bath combo, especially when they are elderly buyers. While it is necessary to have at least one bath tub in the home for resale, many people find that the ease of getting in and out of a walk in shower is beneficial. If you can include handicap features in your design (ie. the width of the opening being able to accommodate a walker or chair) you may be opening yourself up to more buyers when it comes resale time.
Having said that you will never make every buyer happy no matter what design you choose.
Best of Luck
