How Important Is a 3rd Bedroom or 2nd Bathroom in Ocala Marion County?
In my over 13 years of experience selling real estate in Ocala Marion County area this conversation comes up several times a year, if not more. Many buyers do not need or require a 3rd bedroom or 2nd bathroom at the time of their purchase. But as a Realtor, I make sure we discuss all aspects of the home purchase including the potential future resale value and more importantly the future marketability of the property. As you can see below the extra third bedroom home sales are considerably higher and some months even double the number of closed sales. The additional second bathroom shows an even larger increase in number compared to home with only one bathroom.
In my opinion, if at all possible and within budget. always opt for the home with a third bedroom. Most importantly, demand that second bathroom in your new home, condo, townhouse or manufactured home. Humans are nomadic(person who does not stay long in one place, always on the move) and there are few of us who live in a home for more than seven years based on recent statistics. The small additional upfront cost could equal an important boost in future marketability and demand of your investment.
