June Buerkle answered:
The bathrooms are located next to each other because it is much easier to run the water line and install the plumbing system that way.

As for your question, the full answer is it depends.

From the perspective of the appraisal, yes it will decrease the appraised value of the home. The appraisers look only at numbers and does the house have it or not. (A 25 yr old functional air conditioner scores the exact same appraisal value as 2 month old high SEER unit). So, having one less bath will appraise lower.

However a single larger, modernized, well-appointed, aesthetically pleasing bathroom may create additional perceived value in the eye of a potential buyer.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Regarding Trulia, only realtors can post listings directly to Trulia. Therefore, contact a local realtor or visit in person and have the agent remove the Trulia listing from the MLS feed. However, there are other real estate websites and have you verified if your home is listed on other websites? Examples: Yahoo, Zillow, Postlets, etc. On Zillow you can claim your home and under the "More" tab, state it is no longer for sale and it will be removed. You can do this for free - just register first.

Finally, as all real estate websites get their information from your county's public database, please request to have your address removed from your county's public information so this way it won't be advertised all over the internet.

Hi! Thank you all for your opinions! I think the answers here will help us decide what to do with our master bath (and yes, we have another nicer bath with a tub).
