“What, No Shower?!?”

In a business where dimensions are usually defined in square feet, yards, or even acres, when do fractions — specifically, .25 or 1/4 — loom large?

When it’s the difference between a 3/4 Master Bath and a 1/2 Master Bath.

The former has a shower, sink and toilet; the latter, just a sink and toilet.

Especially if the next closest shower is down the hall — or on another floor — it can make a BIG difference to prospective Buyers.

See also, “Partial Bathroom.”

P.S.: I suppose a 1/2 Bath could also consist of a toilet and shower (no sink) . . . but I’ve never seen that configuration.
